Steamer turned on the Folda – Adresseavisen

the Case is updated.

I have talked with the captain on board. They encountered worse weather than that which was notified when they came out on the Folda.

“Richard With” went from Rørvik Saturday morning, and decided last night not to go stop in Trondheim because the weather between Trondheim and Rørvik was so bad that it would create further delays. But when the ship came out of the ocean off the North-Trøndelag showed you that the trip across the open havstykket was too uncomfortable.

– There is no danger in the air, but I expect that those who are on board are not so comfortable right now. Therefore, it was decided to turn the nose back to Rørvik again, ” says Ege.

It is thus unclear when the Hurtigruten ship “Richard With” will arrive in Ålesund at this nyttårsturen.

There has been a lot of delays this christmas in, but the weather is not something we can do with. We keep passengers on board informed, and will make decisions about the further route eventually when we know the weather will be. It will be provided information to guests who have already booked travel with the “Richard With” as soon as the situation is clarified, ” says Ege.
