Arriving in Shaktoolik on a Maul 7

This aircraftflew around the world. Not bad for a colourful single engine.

Weather forecast: High pressure system over Eastern Russia and Alaska. A weather front moves into the eastern Bering by Thursday. 

This means that the winds that started to pick up last night are going to get worse and the weather will deteriorate.

Cold, icy wind.

Rhodi (race judge, completed the race five years ago) procured some fresh Fairbanks salmon. Delicious. Then there was the smoked black cod - a delicacy not available commercially.
