It was so calm this morning that we could barely feel the motion of the ship. The wind was less than 5 knots and variable. The ocean swell was almost imperceptible. We are grateful to have had such a calm crossing. The Denmark Strait is well known for its ferocious storms. As we approached the coast of Iceland the weather began to change. Grey clouds moved in and by 11:00 it was completely overcast, however the wind stayed down and we had glass-like conditions all of the way to Grundarfjördur.
During the morning we were kept busy attending lectures and briefings on our plans for the day.
