We're going to steal ourselves another 24-48 hours, both the Greenland and Iceland responses are expected this evening/tomorrow.The good news is that the Greenland 'outbreak' in Nuuk has been confined, and the lockdown cancelled earlier today - so something that would have derailed our plans is no longer an issue...Update tomorrow!

Nobody drowned - a successful day!

May 30, 2021, 8:16:07 AM Public news
A very quick word to say thanks to those who did the dunker training (either in the UK or the synchronised Spanish one!). A good day had by all, in many ways like the Greenland Air Trophy itself - pushing the comfort levels a little bit but not too much.Also a great opportunity to meet nearly all of Team Europe, Duncan is lucky to have such a great group.It must be said, though, that Team Americas is way better, indeed the best ever - simply no question about it. :)On the 27th June, in Narsarsuaq, may the best team (Americas) win!Go Team!

However we hope these restrictions will soften as the vaccine roll-out continues.Greenland - currently severely restricted, but with relaxation foreseen on 18 April, and possibly none (or very few) restrictions by 18 June or earlier (when both first and second vaccine rollout is complete).Iceland - possible with light restrictions - forecast to be relatively easy by June.Faeroes - currently severely restricted for stays but no problem for transit (our plan). We

Positive news from Nunavut, Canada

Mar 25, 2021, 3:49:23 PM Public news
We just received this email from a local contact in Iqaluit.Our Public Health Dr Patterson was announced that by the end of April every community in Nunavut will have had opportunity to host a vaccination clinic. We have received 39,000 doses of Moderna vaccine. 6600 have had two shots and about 7000 more have had one shot.At this time there are no cases of Covid in Nunavut.So I feel some optimism that your planned dates might work without the long over water jump from Labrador or Arctic Quebec into Greenland.Best wishesWe're excited, you?
