A skipper’s dispatch received at this time reports the following: “Making fantastic progress with average 9 knots, 214 nautical miles over the last 24 hours. Sighted dolphins and 2 whales. Plenty of fulmars accompanying NANUQ. We haven’t sighted any sign of human activity over the last day… Our autopilot is doing a fantastic job. Great sailing and a privilege to be here and now! Sailing with steady easterly winds north of a low pressure system. Have a good night!” NANUQ is on her way to Seyðisfjörður, east Iceland, where she is estimated to arrive in two days.
