At "Breisundet", south of Ålesund between Godøy and Hareidlandet you are forced out in the open sea. Power, wind and extreme depth variations can cause rough seas and difficult conditions in the waters. The sea go heavy and coarse, especially in western and north western wind. The outgoing flow from "Storfjorden" can be powerful at times, even though it normally remains at around one knots. The depth in Breisundet goes down to 300 meters.
I have made my painting from 2009 of Breisundet in stormy and rainy conditions. To the left you see the Eltrane at Sula island.
