It is around midnight on 6th October that we sailed around South Cape, with a magnificent moonshine. The weather was very good and we reached the wide Kvalvagen Bay, surrounded with 2 large glaciers. Not a really good shelter to anchor, but we still spent the night in front of Cape Boltodden, rocked by the waves, warmly inside (-8 degrees outside), watching northern lights. This morning, the wind was too strong to sail the 25 nautical miles left to Inglefield Bay, so we dropped anchor half way, in front of the big glacier Richard. We had first to remove the 2 or 3 centimetres of ice recovering all front of Vagabond, from the freezing spray. We should arrive tomorrow at the chosen Bay for wintering... Eric
