Cros­sing to Jan May­en – 14th-16th June 2016

The cros­sing is ama­zin­gly calm and life is rela­xed, even for con­fir­med land rats on a small sai­ling boat like this. I can even do my litt­le pre­sen­ta­ti­on of Jan May­en out­side, whe­re the­re is less noi­se from the engi­ne. Other than that, the cros­sing is only inter­rup­ted by the sigh­t­ing of a rare Blue wha­le and some occa­sio­nal Bea­ked wha­les.

Jan May­en is com­ing up on the hori­zon on the third day of our cros­sing. We fol­low the sou­thern north coast for some hours until we reach Kval­ross­buk­ta. The anchor goes down after 440 nau­ti­cal miles, and soon, we have estab­lis­hed our base camp on shore.

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 (3): Die Bären­in­sel und Jan May­en”, with Ger­man text Click here for fur­ther details!
