Navy Cliff in sight

Published on 11.05.2009 - Thule to Thule

Navy Cliff is a point in the north-east of Greenland at the end of an immense fjord. And it's that point that the two men now have firmly in their sights...

But because Jesper M. Ganc-Petersen and Erik B. Jorgensen are not sending back any details about their daily positions or progress, it is just about impossible to track them accurately as they make their way over the Greenland icecap. In fact, their reports are generally confined to a single page, with no date or time, and almost no figures or distances.

The only information we can provide at the moment is to say that they are somewhere in the zone of uneven and jumbled ice, where sometimes the only progress they can make is by pushing their sledge. We also know that the wind is by no means a constant factor in this type of adventure and that some of their days on the move last for 24 hours or even more before the wind gods turn in their favour and allow them to cover a maximum distance using their traction kites.

One thing is for sure, though, the two men are still heading for Navy Cliff as their arrival point on the Greenland coast.
