Expedition Pittarak started


Arved Fuchs will be setting out on his latest expedition on the 4th of July. The destination aboard his ship the "Dagmar Aaen" is the eastern coast of Greenland. The ship, which has been worked on in the shipyard for the last months, is in the best technical condition. The title of this new undertaking is PITTARAK, the name given by the inhabitants of Greenland to the dreaded fall winds which occur often there. The crew will start out on this expedition from the Museum Harbour in Flensburg. The expedition is a combination of sailing along Greenland's eastern coast - a coast which is extremely difficult to approach - and exploring the mountainous regions there. The expedition will be accompanied by a team from the ZDF, who will be filming on board the ship for the television.
