Another Gale

22 September 2018 | East Greenland
5am this morning (Sunday) we finally arrived in an East coast anchorage we visited last year with Dave Benbow, after a 73 hour motor. We had a stressful final hour in the dark, working our way carefully through heavy brash ice. Whilst little of it was big enough to do the hull damage, the water was choked with pieces that could damage the propeller, thank goodness for the spot light and radar. We have chosen this anchorage as a safe bolt holt for the next gale which arrives in 12 hours and is hitting Southern Greenland at storm force (66 kts). We are only predicted 30kts, so a good move coming here utilising the good weather break. We plan to leave here direct for Iceland in the next few days which is 350nm or hopefully 2.5 days sailing.
