Yiieehhaaa! Just Passed Baillie Island, off Cape Bathurst. Had about 30 nm of 2/10 to 5/10 ice. Yves stayed in the mast for four full hours.
In the beginning, it Looked Almost impenetrable and We Were starting to get frustrated. Goal then we saw a polar bear on an ice floe behind us, so we turned around To have a closer look at the magnificent animal and spotted a narrow pass just next to him. He was our 'fortune bear', showing us the way.
