A chilly breeze greeted us at the entrance of Kong Oscar Havn as we ventured out along the committing south coast of Angmagssalik Island.

You do not need a zoom account to join the talk but it is easy to create one if you want.

You can join via a browser, download the software for PC or App on your phone.  Ideally you will have access to a webcam and microphone, but this is not essential. Please feel free to interact and ask questions either during or at the end of each talk.

The details and Meeting ID: are circulated to club members via google group email each week.

We hope to have a different talk each week so if you have a set of photos or can talk about some aspect of the sport for about 20 minutes please contact

Kind regards
