Northwest Passage Report

Michael Thurston on Drina reports from Port Leopold:

The ice situation is almost unchanged.

No yacht has gone through Bellot Strait as yet. We on Drina are still at Port Leopold, have not made our mind up yet if it is timely to go down to Fort Ross. It does look quite clear on ice maps to get to Fort Ross, with some 2/10 ice on the way.

The yacht Gjoa are on their way today. Arctic Tern are on their way there also and may well be there by now. We think that Novora may be at Fort Ross.

We are told that the Norwegian tug and barge are at Fort Ross and have been told to wait there by Coast Guard.

No news on Le Manguier. Catryn and Lillian B left here today on there way back.
