K: Land-Ho!

It's 0100 and I've just come off watch. Out to the east a long, purple, raggedy chain of mountain tops is coming into view through the sunrise (ok - so our boat-time's a bit out of synch with the rest of the world). Greenland! 40-odd miles away off the beam. We've got 150 miles to go before we turn up the fjord into Nuuk - so lunchtime tomorrow's my guess.

Currently rollicking along con gusto. Running downwind in 25-30 kts, poled out heady and just dropped the mainsail. Sea state: frisky.

Night all, K.
