Hello everybody and greetings from Summer Star on her way towards Greenland. We were in Iceland for a month, so we are dividing the news into Iceland, Part 1 and Iceland, Part 2.

As always, please do not hit reply to this newsletter because we often are limited as to bandwidth so much better if you send us a separate email to boat@summerstar.us - if you want to send us a note, etc. 

Please also let us know if you would prefer not to receive these emails or if you would like to be added to our list.

For those that like to track our travel on an hourly basis the link is https://forecast.predictwind.com/tracking/display/SummerStar?mapMode=useAtlas&windSymbol=OFF&weatherSource=PWE 

 

We departed the Faroe Islands at 4am on June 28th. The weather was not ideal, but it was better than the weather that was coming - so we took it. After 36 hours, we arrived in the fjord town of Seydisfjordur, on the east coast of Iceland. The boat was coated in salt.

 

All pleasure craft we have seen so far are sailboats, however as we were approaching Iceland we saw this familiar boat right behind us. First time we saw Ada Hardy was in France in 2017, followed by a Norway sighting in 2018 and now here she is streaming into the same fjord as us. Every time we have seen here before the owners have been absent so it was fun this time to meet the owner. Ada Hardy was built in Tasmania and is quite the vessel. We saw her later in Iceland and will probably see her again in Maine. What a small world.

Our first order of business was to get some (excellent) pizza and celebrate Atle’s birthday.
