Michael Henderson: Iceland and Greenland.

Date: 
Tue, 15/10/2019 - 19:30

Hot from a talk at the Scottish Boat Show, Mike Henderson is the man to go to in the CA's Baltic Section to find out about cruising in Iceland and Greenland. In the email he sent me agreeing to do the talk, he said that he was waiting in Husavik, on the North coast of Iceland, for the ice to clear so that he could visit Scoresby Sound  on the East Coast of  Greenland. I think we can expect an interesting account of sailing in the challenging North.
