Green Dragon have just reported an iceberg sighting, “At 1230 GMT whilst sailing at 20 knots under masthead spinnaker in 23 knots of wind, Green Dragon passed between two medium sized icebergs. Following this a third was spotted about 1 mile to windward. Our intention is to gybe north at daybreak in approx two hours time. At present the water temperature is 11 degrees”. This is the first report of any icebergs during this leg.
