I'm hoping the currents work in my favor.
As I understand it, and I have been watching the ice for about 3 years, the bergs come down the Labrador side when the freeze breaks up.
If we don't have a lot of offshore pack between Nfld and Greenland then I should be OK going up the Greenland side early. Not that its guaranteed, a few years ago there was a long lasting line of ice that lasted late in the season.
Hopefully by going up W Greenland early (may have to skip points south) I will cross over to Baffin late in July and be below Nain by August 15.
Anyway, that's the plan. Who knows what will actually happen. No idea where I will get to but pretty sure I'll start.
