Monday, 22nd of August:
We got up early this morning to make sure we’d be on time for the presentations in the elementary and high school.
During this time Sabine manage to go to the nurse with Mia. She was incredible and did everything to make sure we had answers for open questions as soon as possible. Mia’s hemoglobin counts were good, which is reassuring to hear. She has a throat infection though and has to take antibiotics.
Then we spent the rest of the day looking up weather and other things to be able to leave. Dario also spent time trying to figure out overwintering possibilities. The news of the many strong storms in the Arctics this year has urged us to have a good possible plan-b.
Thanks to Rob, we’re hoping for a permanent replacement to our old autopilot that will enable easier sailing in the weeks ahead. Feels like Xmas and with these good news, it will also be easier to face the cold at the helm.
Now we are on our way out of Cambridge Bay towards Goja Haven. We left maybe an hour ago and are slowly sailing along with light winds and a calm sea.
