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.
The ice in east Greenland continues to thin but it is no where near as clear as last year. In fact it's about half way between what it was in 2015 ( an exceptionally bad year) and 2016 (an exceptionally good year). I guess that makes it average!
Prins Christian Sund is marginal at the moment but this lovely Sentinal satellite photo shows Tasilaq still well frozen in. To my inexpert eye I doubt that we will be sailing into Tasilaq as scheduled in the early part of this summer's cruise.
