Boat ride in Greenland Sea from Skagaströnd to Siglufjörður

May 17, 2014 § Leave a comment

The pain of 45-90 degree pitching boat in the Greenland Sea, for 9 hours, oh and stuck in the back with no real beds. In the sea footage towards the end, that pitching of the horizon is the boat…. the camera is in a fixed position. With fave salty dogs Guido van Helten and Linda Ros. Memory of a lifetime. Cannot wait to make more of these over the next 7 months….

Yesterday a chance encounter on a boat docked in Skags – we took portraits of the sailors for Guido to paint into murals in town, the mayor asked if we wanted to go on board for the final leg of the trip. Our destination was Siglufjord, a narrow and small fjord on the north coast of Iceland. It was about a 9 1/2 hour voyage…. sweet baby Jesus.

Huge seas (10 ft, 12 ft??), no sleep, one very sick cabin mate and a bit of time spent flying off our bench beds to floor. Drenched by huge wave outside while boat almost vertical… might have been some killer whale wrestling. A great adventure with fellow salty sea dogs Guido and Linda.

I was thankful to see dry land. Now to bed.
