Steaming through polar glaciers

The fascinating adventure of skipper Sergio Davì continues with success, mainly alone in the most extreme and difficult sections. In recent weeks he has in fact reached the Far diameterer Islands, where he was a guest of the Torshavn Marina, and Iceland, where he was affectionately received by the Snarfari Marina of Reykjavik and some representatives of the Peace Run of Iceland.

The stop in Reykjavik was of fundamental importance because, as scheduled, here it has been necessary to carry out the second pit-stop by lifting up the boat, cleaning the hull, checking the engines with oil change and filters. Operation of vital importance before continuing with the second half of the journey. And of course, special thanks to Suzuki Iceland that provided oil and filters for this operation.

Just at this time captain Davì, on boars of his Nautilus Explorer, is sailing through the "Denmark Strait", that's to say the oceanic waters separating Iceland from Greenland.

At Tasiilaq (also known as Assamalik), first Greenlandic port of call, Sergio Davì is waited by the Italian explorer Robert Peroni, who has crossed Greeland by foot several times.

After Tasiilaq he will have a stop in the small town of Qaqortoq, south of Greenland, and then on to Canada.

Solo navigation involves many difficulties. It is very tiring both physically and mentally. It is impossible to be able to rest and there can be no distraction or loss of concentration. A hard test to which Davì seems to respond with excellent results.

The technical-logistic support offered by the partners of the Ice Rib Challenge is also fundamental: as we know Davì is carrying out this adventure on board of a totally standard RIB (rigid inflatable boat) branded Nuova Jolly Marine model Prince 38cc, powered by two outboard engines Suzuki DF350A dual prop, with only few adjustments to make suitable the navigation at extreme latitudes. Thanks to the special nautical tent made by Toti (nautical upholstery) and the special pilot seats created by Besenzoni, the captain can face front to difficult sailing hours, sheltering from rain, wind and cold.

Moreover, thanks to the use of Amphibious bags (dry equipment), all equipments and personal goods are protected from bad weather and temperature changes.
