All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night, in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity, but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes to make it possible.

Arctic Kite Tour 2009 - It's in the bag!

On 27 July 2009 our dream of skiing from Narsaq, in the
southern part of Greenland, to Qaanaaq in the north-western
part of Greenland came true. We tried in 2007 but had to abort
due to appalling weather conditions. However, we had promised
each other to return to Greenland as soon as possible and finish
the job. And so we did. What a glorious feeling it was to be able shake hands and celebrate our success.

 In 2014 we will return to Greenland

This time we are not going to cross the Inland Ice but will explore the west coast of Greenland in our boat - a freefall lifeboat we are currently converting into a motorsailor.

It is our goal to reach Etah and if the ice situation permits - we will sail as far north as Hans Island.

We are documenting every step of the conversion of the boat and have already taken a ton of photos. Click here, if you want to have a look.
