midnight sunset

We spent a calm and peaceful night at anchor in a bay just south of the north westerly tip of Iceland. The alarm went off at 4am and the anchor came up with a light dressing of weed. The wind was of course blowing directly fro Scoresby Sound so we set off, close hauled and motor sailing on a course of 340. Quickly we were into murky drizzle with wind to 18kn but that gave way to a clear and overcast day.

At 10.30 we tacked east to gain some eastings.
