Commentary

It was a dank, overcast evening as our fleet headed away from the Wadden Zee for the far north of the Svalbard archipelago. Despite the wind blowing out of the south, air temperatures were low, anticipating what was surely going to be worse to come. Moderate wind strengths meant that in our Riptides progress was slow enough. Days later then, somewhere along the Norwegian coast above Bergen, the wind shifted into the north east bending numbingly cold air around the top of Europe, wind that blew stronger the further you stood offshore, enticing many to do so.

But in the end, the wind favoured those who kept closer (but not too close) in, allowing ij to consolidate the lead he had already eked out with wind behind, and then extend it as the wind lightened, taking the gun by more than an hour from his nearest pursuers, after more than a week of dogged perseverance through the bone-numbing cold. Impressive stuff!
