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.
