• Chiots Uummannaq

An ice strip about two kilometres wide was on our way, on June 17th. It was time for the new crew to learn about sailing in pack ice, using the crow's nest and ice poles. Then, it was open water up to Uummannaq. Long detour for a short stop to get more details about walruses in the area, and about ice situation. I was also the opportunity to have a quick look at a place where Vagabond could spend some time for another project (2012-2014...). Peter, black halibut fisherman, immediately invited us at home to answer all our questions. No doubt, we must reach the ice edge, further North, to find walruses.
