8 nights

We spend the first day or two in the magnificent fjords in the south, before we prepare ourselves and the boat for the crossing over to Iceland.

The climate is a bit cooler and autumnal now. The days will be shorter and we can expect more wind and weather.

Hence for this leg and the next we expect proper ocean sailing and good progress, and there will be plenty of opportunities to learn more about sailing and offshore sailing. Everyone on board will be part of the crew running the boat; you will be challenged with navigation, sail trimming, cooking and seamanship, both in daylight and during night.

ITINERARY

Day 1 – Provisioning, readying of vessel and equipment

Once we’re done provisioning, and are ready for the trip over to Iceland and Norway, we’ll sail towards the hot springs of Uunartoq. We wouldn’t leave Greenland without a bath out in the free.

Day 2 – Morning bath in the hot springs of Uunartog

We’ll sail far, but make time for a morning bath in the hot springs of Uunartoq. We’ll then sail on to Nanortalik and have a quick detour in the Tasermiut-Fjords.

Day 3 – Nanortalik and exit out Prince Christiansstrait

We’ll make the final preparations, check ice-maps, weather forecasts and if everything is looking alright we’ll hoist sail eastwards and out on the ocean.

Day 4-7 – Overseas sailing to Reykjavik

With reasonable or hard weather, we’ll spend around 3-4 days on our trip over to Iceland and Reykjavik. What matters these days is making sure all equipment is sailing-ready, divide into shifts and enjoy the ocean life. The vessel is solid as granite, and we have all safety-gear onboard.

Day 8-9 – Experiences in and around Reykjavik

Our goal is to come to Iceland with plenty of time to spare so we have time for activities in Reykjavik. A city with plenty of experiences to offer for sailors and tourists. But it’s the weather that decides how much time will be spent on Iceland once we’ve arrived. We recommend all participants to set aside some time so you can explore Iceland.
