Today we are making our way south at about 1 to 2kts.

Weaving along tracks of open water and leads as we navigate through the ice bridge is a long slow process.

Frequent banks of thick fog rolling in help to make life even more interesting for the watchmen who are constantly searching for the clear tracks ahead.

Yesterday we made another 30nm toward the south.

We have about 240 mile to go now and conditions are looking good whenever the fog lifts.

 

Open ice in the fog. Looking forward from halfway up the mast.
