Sally and I left Scotland in 2015 on board Shimshal to begin a slow circumnavigation taking in various high latitude destinations.
Shimshal is now back in Reykjavik, Iceland having enjoyed a spectacular cruise to North East Greenland. Next year: Greenland again but this time crossing to Tasilaq and then hugging the coast all the way down the East Coast, through Prince Christian Sund and back up north to Aasiaat where we plan to over-winter in 2017/18 at 68N.
Halldor, the OCC Port Officer for Isafjordur, had been tracking our passage north. He wasn't there to take our lines at 2am but he was at 10am when we stirred from our bunks. He seems as delighted to see us as we were to see to see him. A great welcome to this far flung part of the world.
