Novara is awakening from her long winter hibernation. Phil and Terje have already returned to Kodiak to begin to get her ready for her summer cruising in Alaskan waters. The winter has been spent with family and friends and preparing for the adventures yet to come.
Having wrote a short article of our trip up the east coast of Baffin Island for the Ocean Cruising Club's Flying Fish magazine, I was surprised to be nominated and then honored to win, the Rambler Medal and went over to London for the prizegiving dinner.
It was great to meet up with Bob Shepton again who had won the OCC's Barton Cup (for the 2nd time) for his 2012/2013 double NWP transits.
At the end of the evening Bob brought the house down with a short video made by the Wild Bunch.
Sean and the gang have also made a longer video showing their 2014 Greenland and Baffin Island climbs that feature our evening together on board Novara.
