A blustery day, rather nice on the way north, traveling with the winds. Once again we had to sail all the way to Hrísey but stayed along the west coast to gain more shelter. It was actually really calm and we got some nice views of eider ducks and harbour porpoises, a pod of about 10 surfacing fast. On the way back to port the weather had turned for the worst and it was a bit of a roller coaster, very strong winds and many white caps. A lot stronger than the forecast was suggesting earlier in the day. However most of the passengers enjoyed the adventure but some were getting a bit green in the face. They were offered complimentary tickets to come again for free in two years.
