Fiona Reaches Upernavik

Fiona left Sisimiut on 24 July, sailing and motoring north toward Upernavik ("Springtime Place" in Greenlandic). The settlement is so small that everything is within walking distance for the 1,144 residents. Current temp is 44F , with 13 mph winds making the temps feel like 37F. Fiona's blog posted a 29 July ETA for Upernavik so it appears they are a little ahead of schedule. Fuel will be taken on here in order to make the Baffin Bay crossing to Lancaster Sound. Russ reports seeing fulmers, occasional seals, icebergs and again sends "greetings to all" ~DH~
