It’s day 59. But it’s our day 1 going South, by choice. All the other time we went there, it was because of the drift.
The wind is still blowing from the North. In our case going towards Tuktoyaktuk, it means tailwind. We are surfing along. For few hours though since it becomes too strong and we choose to call it a day. Still, 20nm. What a difference with the tacking experience!!
Seb and Eric take advantage of the spare time to pump and filter some water in order to collect micro plastic for future analyzations. They also drill the ice to measure its thickness. Adventure with purposes !
Tomorrow, alarm will ring between 1 and 4am. We leave early, as soon as the wind drops. We might have 3 days of good sailing. Time for progress…
