First Iceberg

10AM:  This morning it is 40F with the sea temperature at 52F.  1st visual (non-radar) iceberg sighted just before noon.  After a course change to the north it will pass off the port side.

10PM: we set sail and shut the engine down for the first time since leaving Nuuk.  Now close hauled on the port tack.  Wx CAVU ["Weather:  Ceiling and Visibility Unlimited"].  No fog.  Temperature outside is now 36F and not too much warmer inside.  Without the engine running the little diesel furnace doesn't quite keep up.  Damp and cold!
