Faxaflói (Iceland) March 1st

We went from Kópavogur harbour across the bay to Akranes onward to Hvalfjörður (Whalefjord) where we took land at the whaling station after little rest we went to Reykjavik marina then heading back to Kópavogur harbour.

The temperature was -9 degrees C, clear skies and virtually no wind.

I am wearing Musto HPX dry suit, others are wearing 5 mm diving suits.

In some ares we cruised it was started to freeze so in a day or two if temperature keeps near twin digit number there will be ice but no icebergs

All that way just to write graffiti on the side of a silver storage tank.

This takes extreme boating to a new level and superb photographs too Bogi. God has given you one incredible playground to live in.
