  Some advice
  Posted by: seadart on Mar-23-13 3:12 PM (EST)

Have you read Jon Turk's book "In the Wake of the Jomon" ... it might be a good idea to give you some feeling for trying to sail a small craft in coastal waters with strong currents created by tides in tight islands and fjords. It sounds like a good idea but it did not work out so well. Also you should see the blog of Klara Jansson & Evelynn Brattström two young ladies from Denmark who made the trip in kayaks.

I've lived on the coast of Norway and would recommend that you not do this trip unless you are a very experienced kayaker and have at least two other boats going with you. The sea is very unforgiving and especially in a few spots along the Norwegian coast.
