After a restless night of tracker watching and it not moving, I was relived to get a call from Sarah this morning saying they had arrived safely after a pretty gruelling crossing. The tracker obviously knew the crossing would be tough and didn’t want to go with them! They reached Umnak Island after 15 hours of hard paddling against tides and headwinds and I think they’ve both had more enjoyable crossing then this one – they are safe and both happy to be ashore!
Depending on weather and tiredness levels tomorrow, they will hopefully reach Nikolski within the next couple of days. The tracker should be sorted soon after its technical hitch and the blue dot and yellow line shall catch them up.
Happy dot watching!
