Just passed the Bering Strait last night. Wind was wild: we got 45kn at Cape Prince of Wales. Pachamama was running 10.5 kn just with 2nd reef in the main and staysail half out. Soon after we were nearly calmed out in a steep unpleased swell. Because of N winds we have to tack and were close to the Russian Coast, so touched Asia again.
At the coast we see snow and ruins of world war 2 near Cape York, where is abounded Twin City. Some guillemots flying by. At sunrise this morning Coast Guard Vessel Healey passed and had a long conversation. We shared our experiences to sail the Bering Sea that they can use in there survey. Their Arctic study, see: www.uscg.mil/pacarea/cgcgchealy/aws16
Help us keep our campaign and vessel, the Pachama, alive! Visit our Gofundme page for more details.

Viel, viel Glück bei der Durchfahrt wünsche ich euch herzlichst mit wenig Gegenwind, keinen Wellen und Eisbergen, dafür neugierige Eisbären, Walrosse, Seelöwen, Wale und Seevögel!! Drücke die Daumen. Annemarie
