            Pilot on the way - please prepare your pilot ladder on port side and make a good leeward for the boarding process!

                Looks like the light is returning to the Arctic. It must be good to feel the depth of Winter disappearing behind you.

                When the sun is back 28.01 here in Tromsø you know that the days are just getting brighter and brighter for each passing day.
                But spring is still far away, so we just have to be patient until the beginning of may....

                And at the two equinoxes, it is the same everywhere in the world. Day and night are of equal length for everyone (for an instant).

              ''Lesath'' pedal to the metal back to sea



              and ''lacerta'' back from sea

                Pilot boarding can be dangerous not only for the pilot but the crew that prepare the ladder for his arrival:

                  That's a scenario I had not considered. Conditions must have been severe.

                  It seems odd that the Coast Guard's recommendations are aimed only at owners and operators of "deep draft vessels". I wonder why they would choose to exclude smaller vessels?
