Today we had plenty of fuel on board and decided to be much bolder and just go for it. This time we dropped Stefan much closer to the ice face and continued boldly forward in the boat right up less than 500 m from the face. Close up, the spikey iced wall is even more impressive than from a distance, almost like something straight out of Lord of the Rings. Strangely enough, despite the terrible forecast, the wind was even stronger today with both Gonzalo and Marco opting to take 7.0s for the massive slog back upwind. Gonzalo was first to reach the glacier and all of a sudden we were right there scoring the shots we’d been hoping for, without another soul in sight. Marco wasn’t far behind and now we had both sailors cruising up and down right in front of this utterly amazing backdrop. Morale was definitely back on the up now, that was for sure!
