Dick our dates are constrained by work but here they are:
Ullapool to Faroe 's June 20th to July 5th 2015
Faroe to Reykjavik July 20th to August 16th 2015
We have SSB but no modem so will access ice reports via Iridium GO

Simon,
Thanks for getting back to me.
Perhaps we will catch up with you in 2016 in Iceland or Greenland.
Is it early or late June you look to get to Faroe from mainland Scotland?
And when leave Faroe to go around Iceland?
At what point will you start to get ice reports? And how are you planning to get them?
Enough for now. Thanks for your thoughts, Dick

Dick,
Sally and I are starting on this route next week but we plan to take at least 2 seasons over it and have already booked a winter berth in Reykjavik. So next week we sail to Ullapool where we will leave the boat for a month (returning to work). Then in June we sail to Torshafn in the Faroe 's where we leave the boat again. In July / August we go anticlockwise around Icleand to our winter the berth.

In 2016 we will go onto Greenland.

Do let us know how your plans develop.

Simon

My wife and are planning to return to North America (currently in Lerwick) in a couple of seasons and are thinking that a north route has real interest and possibilities. I would like to start a conversation here with anyone with experience/knowledge of these waters and islands as a beginning to data collection on the sorts of challenges to be prepared for.
Thanks, Dick Stevenson, s/v Alchemy
