Lucked out on my watches. Just getting really dark at midnight when I get off, and first light at 8 in the morning. Wind has died down. Doing 6 knots. Genoa flapping.
Looked at ice charts. Our short cut through Prince of Wales Sound is blocked by multi year ice, so the southern route for us to Cambridge Bay.
Big mile stone last night, Cape Bathurst. Going into Amundsen Sound. Swell died down from Beaufort sea.
Water temp is much lower, is that because of the difference of the warmer river temps ? or are we seeing a definite change in the season?
