In the summer of 1137, Sigurðr slembidjákn ‘Fortuitous-deacon’ (?) Magnússon returns to Norway via Denmark from the Hebrides (or Orkney). He harries in the regions around Oslofjorden and lies with his ships in Portør, waylaying merchant ships. The men of Tønsberg muster a force that comes upon Sigurðr and his men unawares, and Sigurðr flees on one ship. Vatn-Ormr Dagsson’s ship is the closest to Sigurðr’s, but, rather than engaging in fighting, Vatn-Ormr backs off.
