A real disembarkation
Published on 15.05.2008 - Notice Expedition
It is unusual to see expeditions dropped off by boat on the coastline â yet that was exactly what happened for the three Dutchmen.
They have not sent back a lot of information yet, but what we do have gives us plenty of details about their first day on 14th May. The men waited for their luggage and equipment at Narsarsuaq, after which they boarded a motorboat to do a bit of sightseeing and head for their departure point.
Once there, they had to use ropes to unload their three sledges, each weighing 125 kg, and especially to overcome the first difficulties presented by the ice-free terrain leading to the glacier.
