Once in the kayaks, our energy comes back, and we paddle westward with good speed. Weak wind and cloudy. We meet a group of porpoises, which disappear as soon as Johan gets the GO-PRO going. We see plenty of skua whose strategy to get food is to stress sea gulls to spew up their recent catch.
Near Kirkenes, we see the passenger ferry Hurtigrutten at safe distance, not for the last time, we gather.
After 30 km, we reach Bugones, where we land to find out about the weather forecast. The network coverage has been bad until now, but here we had at least some. Since weather was predicted to be stable, we start crossing Varanger Fjord.
Rain. Initial weak northeasterly winds, increasing to 9 m/sec in the evening.
Porridge, powdered milk, coffee, Bounty bar
Pasta with mushroom sauce
Haddock in cream sauce and rice.
