Final Preparations and Mallaig Departure

After a week spent in Mallaig taking on fuel, food and water we are all itching to get going. The crew has all arrived and we are just about to enjoy a final pint ashore before departing tomorrow morning with an estimated 20 days to cross to Nuuk. It is our hope to stay fairly self sufficient for food during our time in Greenland which has lead to a fairly hefty shopping bill… (7 trolleys)

Stats:

250l Drinking water

200l Diesel

10kg Coffee

60l Wine

500m Climbing rope

Our thank you card to the team at Mallaig Habour who have been beyond helpful with us getting ready for the trip

 

Big thanks to everyone who has helped us out getting ready for the trip, way to many names to name but thank you, it has been very much appreciated.
