Summary of the stopover

After the fjords’ navigation until Iceland, Jeanne joins us in Upernavik to discover the ice caps. On the other side of Baffin’s sea, Sean and Nico are alone waiting for our arrival. It’s early in the season and there is still a lot of ice. We still decide to leave, hoping to find a way until Samfordfjord. Although the ice’s reflex distorts reality, we keep going to finally cross the ice banks and join Nico and Sean. An improbable meeting at the world’s end. After two months spent on their own for Nico and Sean and a long traverse for us, it is quite incredible to meet in these icy plains. We depart together, eager to find a way across the ice of the North-West passage.
