Cape Farewell


Arriving in Narsaq, South Greenland

We reached Cape Farewell — Uummannarsuaq in Greenlandic — around June 1st. Luckily, we had very calm sea and no wind, but a lot of ice. The navigation in the pack ice was amazing. We could observe many seals of at least three different species (ringed, bearded, and harp seals).

After three days sailing South then West to go around the cape and avoid the pack ice, with only very little fuel left in the tanks, we finally managed to reach the coast and entered Bredefjord, sailing towards Narsaq.

More than one week later than planned, we touched the ground for the first time after two weeks at sea. It was really moving to see my brother Eric, France and my two nieces together again.
