Photo: Sailing off the east coast of Greenland. August 2015
I’ve added a gallery of images from Greenland: CHECK IT OUT HERE
I have also put out a short video from the trip: CHECK IT OUT HERE
I photographed the trip for Rubicon 3 sailing, an expedition sailing company based out of the UK with an emphasis on training and education while taking guest to wild and remote parts of the world. The Greenland expedition began is Isafjordur, in the remote Westfjords of Iceland. We spent a week plus exploring Iceland’s fjords while waiting for the ice to clear and a good weather window to make the 72 hour crossing of the Denmark Straight to Tasiilaq, a remote village on the east coast of Greenland.
2015 experienced a cooler than normal summer, so the sea ice remained along the coast of Greenland later into the season than normal, leaving us wondering if we could actually make it to port. But as we arrived off the coast after 3 days at sea, we were able to weave our way through the ice into Kong Oscars Havn and moor up in Tasiilaq, were we enjoyed several days of perfect weather and I was even able to get to the summit of a decent mountain for some nice views across the icy coastline.
Overall, it was a trip to remember, and I think I might now have the ‘Greenland bug.’ Hopefully I can return again one of these days…
