MAUD returns home

Feeling a little frustrated that I can't follow this extreme endeavour. The information popping up on facebook and the official website  is quite scarce.

...so I will try and create a picture with what information I can find out there.

I have not made any entries since 09.2014, the date they arrived... until now...

I have set up my own tracking/info page.

GREENLAND

MAUD HAS REACHED GREENLAND
After 3 weeks of sailing MAUD and Tandberg Polar has reached Aasiaat, Greenland, safe and sound. We are extremely tired but happy to have arrived here in Aasiaat where Maud will stay this winter before continuing to Norway next summer.
Tricky ice conditions in the Northwest Passage and stormy weather across to Greenland gave us a good challenge, but Maud and Jensen as well as our crew stood the test. The old Queen of the ice is on her way home. We are full of joy and gratitude to be part of Maud´s journey back to her home country, after 100 years.

Ice charts show it opening up along W side Bothia Peninsula, down E side King William Island via Gjøa Haven. Favourable NE winds forcasted.
They have contact with others along with supporting ice breaker.
We await their next move.


Still waiting in Depot Bay

A small pocket has opened up slightly at the western end of Bellot Strait. For the time being they are best off where they are. There is an icebreaker in the vicinity advising vessels who wish to make the passage. Patience is the word.



NNE wind will be manipulating the ice next couple of days.

"Wind calming Sat. Small 1-3/10 patch W Bellot Str. Plenty 9-10/10 to S. Patience best option. Fingers crossed."



Waiting by Fort Ross

Hiding among islands in Depot Bay outside Fort Ross waiting for the W side of Bellot Strait to clear.
There is an icebreaker in the area, keeping an eye on vessels attempting the passage.

"E'erlies building today. N 15kn on Wed-Fri with percipetation. Should effect ice other end, we hope."


Making their way S towards Bellot Strait

They are not alone out there. A lot of vessels, commercial as well as private are attemting a one season passage.

A link showed up on the web page, find our position. Hosted and sponsored by:

Nortek AS is a Norwegian company that develops and manufactures Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (ADCP), wave sensors, and current meters for use in the ocean, rivers, lakes, and laboratories. We pride ourselves on being innovative in product development and production processes, and have a number of technological 'firsts' to the scientific community, some of which are protected by US patents.

For the Maud project Nortek has equipped the expedition with a so-called autonomous online system (AOS) that reports the rescue operation’s position every six hours.

Nortek has supplied the AOS free of charge to the expedition. The AOS is normally used as an easy to use data logger with iridium data transmission directly to the web. No sensors are connected during the Maud expedition, but position is reported every six hours. Hence, by looking at the AOS map page you will be able to see where the expedition is at all times.


Now all we need is to be able to see the map, or is that just my problem.  ..Firefox on my machine had problems, Safari and Chrome handled it OK.

I have set up my own tracking/info page.
