A few people have already logged that we safely arrived in Isafordur, NW Iceland midday today Thursday, but thanks to everyone who has been keeping an eye on us :-) We were given a warm welcome back by Muggi, the harbour master, who found us a space as the harbour is full. The next gale comes through early hours Friday morning but we will be well sheltered here and will be fast asleep! So we've re-activated our Icelandic data sim to catch up on emails and update the navigation computers. Tomorrow will be windy so we have sorted the times for the swimming pool to relax with some lengths and finish with the hot tub 🏊. Dinner was a roast chicken from the supermarket with jacket potato and salad.

We had an uneventful passage from Greenland, apart from hitting an uncharted rock (slowly & without much more than another small scrape & dent to the lead keel) whilst departing the last anchorage. A fairwell caress from the East coast! We had no wind to speak of so it was a motor for the whole 400nm, unfortunately but that is the nature of the season, its either blowing a gale or calm. We have at least enjoyed a full moon, calm sea and fabulous Northern lights every evening. Since Sisimiut we have now traveled 1476nm. That's about 1000nm remaining to Ipswich.

Signing off now to get an early but long night's sleep, having done 2 hour watches for the last 3 days. Usually we would do 3 hour watches but with the cold 2 - 2.5 hours was enough.
