Sally and Simon left Scotland in 2015 on board Shimshal to begin a slow circumnavigation taking in various high latitude destinations. In 2018 we sail from Aasiaat, Greenland at 68 42N to Nova Scotia, Canada.
When we get to Greenland the polar bears will be at their hungriest as the sea ice, their larder, will have dispersed. We plan to keep them at a respectful distance but have to be prepared for the worst.
Fortunately we live only 3 miles from a centre that provides training on protection against dangerous animals and Sally proved a crack shot!
