SAC: The Arctic Circle and the Midnight Sun
We had done it.
We turned west to sail along the north coast of Iceland, getting up to 67N.
It was around then that I took the picture above: it's either sunset or sunrise but I'm finding it hard to work out which without checking the photo's time stamp and log book very carefully.
For this picture was taken around local midnight, up at the Arctic Circle, when sunrise and sunset lose their meaning.
(For those wanting a navigation exercise can you calculate our longitude from the fact that the camera was set to BST?)
