great sailing. at 6kn towards iceland. sunshine, spectacular coastline, no ice anymore.
today we went climbing. unexpectedly it was absolutely fabulous. icebergs: check. first ascent: check. whales and seals: check. polar bear: check. etc: check. we can head to iceland.
we are mooring in tingmiarmut next to an abandoned weather or radio station. tomorrow, weather permitting, we search for a bay next to a promising mountain.
drinking champagne in east greenland. a toast to our bear!
steaming through fog against the current. bitter cold.
after a most scenic approach through an iceberg graveyard now in another uncharted anchor bay.
got a glimpse of civilisation when passing an abandoned loran station on qutdleq.
we leave our bay at 4am. stunning views in the morning sun.
no summit, rock is too crumbly. back in the anchor bay we took a bath in the cold springs. heading north again tomorrow.
blue sky. having breakfast and then off to the mountain.
whole day on boat. reading, eating, and making some ammendments to the greenland pilot book. anchor holds firmly.
another boat day. it is low covered, but at least it does not rain. maybe some fishing?
even in the rain we got outdoors and tested our shooting skills. now curing our right shoulders.
back in basecamp. explored mountain a bit and installed first pitch before it got too wet.
lifted anchor around an iceberg. now sailing out of lindenow fjord at sunrise.
just moved the anchor as we sat on ground tonight at low water. in 4 stops 3 groundings.
