The summer of 2017 we sailed from Oslo via Shetland, Orkney, Faroe Islands and Iceland to the west coast of Greenland. We mean the skipper Ole Torrissen and ship-dog wirehaired German Pointer Speldammens V Mira (Mira). My sons, Marius and Tobias visited us during the voyage. Marius was onboard from the Faroe Islands to Iceland and from Nuuk in Greenland up to Illulisat and back to Nuuk. Tobias joined on the return from the Faroe Islands to the Outer Hebrides. The return back to Bergen, Norway were made via the Outer Hebrides and the Caledonian channel.
