Issuma: Cape Prince of Wales

Cape Prince of Wales - Bering Strait
Issuma passed through the Bering Strait on September 8.  Problems with the battery for the sat phone have made posting and email difficult.  But Richard is catching up so check out the Issuma site for his reports, scrolling down to get the chronology.  He comments on passing through the Bering Strait that summer is over and cold weather lies ahead:
Sailing past Cape Prince of Wales with a delightfully favorable wind. Cape Prince of Wales is at the end of the Bering Strait. The Northwest Passage runs from Davis Strait in the east to Bering Strait in the west. While we have now completed the Northwest Passage, the difficult part is mostly still ahead--the trip south, late in the year.
