Sai­ling around Sør­kapp – 23 July 2018

Today is the day to return to the west coast. It should be the per­fect wea­ther win­dow, accord­ing to the fore­cast. Initi­al­ly, the wind let a bit to be desi­red and we had to rely on the engi­ne rather than the sails. At least it was per­fect­ly calm. Near the south cape, the wind star­ted to pick up, and one sail after the other went up until we made 10 knots under can­vas – no engi­ne! Gre­at! Calm enough to do pre­sen­ta­ti­ons about polar bears, Spitsbergen’s flo­ra and to show some his­to­ri­cal pain­tings.
