Can we find an iceberg? Probably… if we go far enough North. Last year was a very very light year for iceberg flow. In fact Newfoundland tourists were a little miffed at the poor showing. The high season for icebergs off Newfoundland is April and May. We don’t depart until June 7th (mark your calendars!). That is extraordinarily late for iceberg hunting. Looking at the charts below of iceberg frequency, it is highly likely that icebergs will only be present off the South East coast of Labrador by the time we arrive. We are prepared to go as far North as needed to find one. I look forward to the challenge and the necessity to push Bristol Channel Cutter Elizabeth hard and fast.
