Fiona 3 Days From Greenland

This morning Capt. Eric reported that Fiona was 350 miles southwest of Nuuk, Greenland in the Labrador Sea. The weather is fine but the winds are light. He e-mails via single side band radio, "All well on board."

Fiona
averages 100 miles per day over the course of a trip, typical for a sailboat of her size. Using that reckoning she should arrive in Nuuk (formerly Godthab) on Thursday PM. All going well, I will arrive Friday around noon and go down the quay to greet her.

Today I'm wrapping up my packing operation. Like another northern traveler, "I'm making a list and checking it twice."
