With the full Arctic polar circle having been completed last year, and although I had visited East Greenland in 2010, I still had the urge to see West Greenland. We flew from Copenhagen to Kangerlussuaq within the Arctic Circle, and thence up to Aasiaat where we joined the small schooner "Rembrandt van Rijn" on which I sailed round the Scottish Islands in 2012. Autumn was well underway with the first signs of winter already appearing.
