Over the last 24 years I have made voyages, many of them multiple, in our sailboat and home, Morgan’s Cloud, to Newfoundland, Labrador, Baffin, Greenland, Iceland, Norway and Svalbard, spending substantial time in each place exploring new anchorages, meeting the people, hiking and skiing.
John Harries and Phyllis Nickel have been cruising in high latitude environments for 17 years …they are a font of practical experience-based information.
High Latitude Consulting
To refill the well of knowledge that others shared with me when I started going north, on request, I provide a free 30-minute Skype call for each boat that is bound north. (I can impart far more information in far less time verbally than I can in writing.)
Note that I will record these calls as I’m considering compiling them into a podcast.
If, after that call, you want me to provide more information, I can continue to advise you for a fee.
Don’t forget that you can find a huge amount about the high northern latitudes on this site by using the search box and the category menu at the top of the page. And, in addition, from time to time we offer High Latitude Sailing Courses.
High Latitude Guide Services
I can also be hired as a guide aboard your boat to share my knowledge—including ice, weather, safe practices, little-known anchorages, culture and history, together with that gleaned from our extensive collection of Arctic books.
With multiple credits in magazines, I can provide professional quality photography to preserve the memories of your voyage in exhibition quality prints and bespoke books, see johnharriesphotography.com.
