We left Allan and Betty after reviewing the engine starter and relay that gave no sign of life … A few minutes of DIY under the anxious eye of Allan and we sail the last 3.7 Nm to the anchorage of Upernavik.
They finish packing (2 large suitcases (+ 1 left at the hotel), a small one, a backpack, 2 handbags) and we’ll go shopping. A lot of boats are arriving, the supermarket is full of people but there is no and a little empty football matches between northern villages explaining the crowd
Tuesday filling up the tank of gas: – we had to order a truck because the automatic pump inaugurated this year does not work – filled by the same team as last year 953 L of which 360 L in cans (8*25 + 5*20 and 60L (red can given by Patrick in Saint-Marteen)) – small leak on the back starboard tank, but we could stopped it by dropping the pressure … Return to the anchorage: calmer (in the city there is a delivery of the freighter of the Atlantic Line from 3h to 8h and matches at around 200m from the boat with arrival and departure of the “Full-Speedy Gonzales boats” 😉
visit to the “Upernavik Cafe” which is very nice. Allan and betty waiting as well as Swiss kayakers
Wednesday: fill up (supplement) of water in the river to be at maximum. Drying and storage of laundry, booths, baking fresh bread and a cake for the arrival of our team members at 17h05. Mussels and sea urchins fishing
We leave the sunny and quiet anchorage to be sure not to have to stress with the starter or other possible problems, andbetter like this because there is a thick fog on the sea side: less than 50 m visibility.
