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.
