What are we waiting for?

Long days, high temperatures in most of the world, why are we not off to Greenland right away, I have been asked a few times lately. We are waiting for the Arctic sea ice extent to shrink. If you look at the June 9 image of the sea ice, you will see that we are not close to being able to get through.

Skipper Fred and all the crew are monitoring eagerly to see the progress. We  all have to be patient.

We will need to have a darkish blue path and hopefully this will happen this August, the earlier the better. If you wish to monitor the daily image, go to:

Another idea of what  the West coast of Greenland looks like  are these pictures  I took in May.
