Simon and Sally Currin s/v Shimshal

For their extraordinary back-to-back voyages in one year to go skiing in Northwest Iceland, then to visit the remote NE coast of Greenland, penetrating deeply into the legendary Scoresby Sound. The planning to arrive when the Sound freed of ice took extraordinary care and safely navigating into Scoresby Sound required exemplary seamanship. Simon subsequently posted meticulous notes about the anchorages in Scoresby Sound on the OCC Forum for all to benefit. Their article in Flying Fish with astonishing photography can be viewed online or downloaded as a pdf.
