Avannaa Expedition is happening right now. It is a Greenlandic reconnaissance fact-finding boat expedition. Explorers, including Ole Jorgen Hammeken (Uummannaq Polar Institute) and Galya Morrell (Uummannaw Music Project), are boating from the Heart of the Arctic, Uummannaq, towards Siorapaluk, Etah, and further North.
On August 1st, received a message from Galya:
“We got in the storm and the boat was damaged – here is a very quick account of our trip. The weather forecast for the day was excellent, yet…. everything changed in a mili second we are fine now.”
“We are stranded on a little island – while repairing the boat.”
In the attachement, I found the following photographs. Enjoy and join brave Arctic explorers at the expedition website www.avannaa.org.
