off for pot luck supper with our friends aboard Balthazar at Point Hope

Progress at last. A day or two after Balthazar left Point Hope to go south the northerlies at last relented and we are out at sea making for Point Barrow in the north as fast as possible – which means mainly on engine there being hardly any wind. As usual in the Arctic, there is either too much wind or too little.

But we are not complaining. Of course all is not settled yet, we are going up north to see whether the ice will let us through….hopefully we shall report back after we have collected more diesel at Barrow and got round the corner (if we get round the corner…)

    Go Bob! I expect some better progress before too long, and much drama to fill out the book (but no disasters please).

    All the best
