Cros­sing to Ice­land – 25th-27th June 2015

(25th-27th June 2015) – Three days dif­fe­rent from tho­se on the way up. Of cour­se still a long time for other­wi­se non-oce­an-going peop­le who just want to get from A to B. The sailors amongst us have, howe­ver, a good num­ber of enjoya­ble miles under sai­les. Star­ting with moto­ring from Jan May­en, as it is initi­al­ly calm and the wind which is then com­ing up is blowing against us (as always … but not too hard). But then the wind turns east, the sails go up and we don’t need the engi­ne for good parts of the remai­ning way. The oce­an-going souls seem to be glued to the stee­ring wheel while we are making good speed of up to around 10 knots on the way sou­thwest. Under a blue, sun­ny sky! Two times, dol­phins come to visit the boat.

And we are fas­ter on the way up, going along­side in Ísaf­jörður on Satur­day mid day alrea­dy. The end of an inten­se, suc­cess­ful, good voya­ge. Thanks to all who were part of it, and good fur­ther tra­vels, home or onwards!

For me, the next two days are the usu­al sequence of packing, flights, air­ports … a boring neces­si­ty, but soon life is going on in Spits­ber­gen, on board SV Anti­gua ☺

By the way, my new book is in print and it can now be orde­red 🙂 it is a pho­to book with the tit­le “Nor­we­gens ark­ti­scher Nor­den (1): Spitz­ber­gen – vom Polar­licht bis zur Mit­ter­nachts­son­ne”, with Ger­man text Click here for fur­ther details!
