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.
