Northern Europe Passage Advice ?

Hello all,

I am sailing a boat from Sweden to Greenland Nuuk via. Scotland and Iceland to reach the Northwest passage. I am in the process of trying to locate a good weather router who is knows the area for the Sweden-Scotland-Iceland-Greenland bit. We have one for the NWP. Any suggestions?

If your interested check out our website and check out the coldest voyage!

Northwest passage on a shoestring

Thanks !!!!

Sounds really interesting project. I will be watching your blog. Wasn't it last year, that a similar boat passed the same route?

Many boats do this one every year.
West cost of norway, over to Shetland, then Færøyene, then Iceland, Greenland
you have to look out for the Low Press coming your way,
and work with them.

If you like doing Scotland first, you go to Egersund;Norway take over to Caledonian Canal and up around the west coast of scotland then Shetland and on. the same way
Have a good trip. and make sure you have your storm sails in good cond.
(did look at your page) you do have your plan made up so have a nice trip)
RX + Crasy Andøy and frends, has done this one more then once. but i guess you know this.
