Finally the sun is out in Halifax. After a quiet day off yesterday all is go onboard again today. We have technicians working on our Gyro system that had problems on the way here as well as many other jobs as we do the final prep for the trip North. The weather has improved here today but the Labrador Sea is ugly tonight. Glad we are here. plan is still to depart Thursday or Friday for Nuuk depending on the weather situation. Thye weather to the North is still quite volatile but we are checking several times a day to find “the window” In the meantime we are tied alongside a “flower class” Corvette.HMCS Sackville check Wikipedia for her history. Eye opening. We owe them all so much. It was a miserable boat to live on but a good sea boat seemingly, yet being known to roll even on wet grass. Can you imagine 6 officers and 90 crew on board that boat. We have 12, soon to be more and we are always looking for a quiet space North Atlantic, winter and an open bridge….not to mention the submarine threat.
