12 August 2023 | Turner Inlet
We left Stor Ö on Aug 9th and sailed up the Blosseville Coast for 2.5 days to Roemer Fjord. We did not stop in Kangerlussuaq since we were already 10 days late due to this season's pack ice conditions. Saw orcas, humpback, minke and Rudolphi whales on the way.
When we reached Roemer Fjord, some local hunters were waiting for narwhales to come in, and politely asked us to leave again, otherwise we would scare the narwhales away; so we anchored in Turner Inlet. Beautiful place, seals, beautiful hike, but still loads of pack ice, so after having had to lift the anchor a couple of times to evade some approaching big icefloes, we decided to continue to Ittoqqortoormiit.
