Day 2: on Santosa in Norway.

So today we were on the water for about 8.5 hours. Sadly, little sailing as the wind speed and direction were against us, although we did have the mizzen sail up for a while.

We covered 58 NM and arrived at Svartisen, Litlvika.

This is the second largest glacier in Norway, and lowest glacier on mainland Europe.

Four of us ticked of two bucket list items: swam in the Arctic Circle in a Glacial lake, overlooking the glacier. What an experience!!! Fabulous scenery on route, no whales sighted yet!!
