The Wind and fog was increasing as we approached our destination of Pt Leopold, located on the NE tip of Somerset Island. With a strong NW the acceleration zone for the wind was in our safe harbour. We had left early that morning from a quiet Resolute Bay. The wind and fog slowly increasing as we crossed Barrow Straits. There were also a few icebergs to watch out for in the gloom. We decided entry to Leopold was too risky and after requesting permission from Canadian Arctic Authorities (Nordreg monitor and have to approve every movement in case of trouble..Nice to know) headed to our alternate Port of Elwyn Bay about 20nm away.
