QUEEN VICTORIA had been scheduled to sail before BALMORAL but for some reason was delayed. By now the weather had broken and three hours of "mizzle" followed. QUEEN VICTORIA was able to get ahead of BALMORAL when BALMORAL sailed up Nærøyfjord for three miles before.
By late evening the sun had returned and it was just possible to see QUEEN VICTORIA a head in Sognefjord as both ships approached the sea. (far right).
