83.01 Degrees North

One interesting note on this venture was that the Southwind actually got stuck. Ice froze around the ship. Preparations were underway to winter-over the ship. As the IC Electrician, my billet was to stay with the winter-over crew. But thanks to the persistence of Captain Cassidy, shifting the fuel oil between the port and starboard tanks, rocking the ship while maneuvering the ship around, we got free (to the cheers of those of us picked to winter-over). Thank you Capitan Cassidy (who I see is a shipmate on the site).

Thule, Greenland

Speaking of the ship's rock band, after escorting the Wynedot (I believe that's the correct name) into Thule, Captain Cassidy got "The Common People" a gig at the Air Force's NCO Club. Come to find out, SAS Airlines flew into Thule (I believe delivering Scientists, etc.). One day (or night as it was daylight all the time), "The Common People" were playing at the NCO Club when to our surprise (and delight), one of the SAS Flight Attendants got up on stage and started dancing (picture attached). Now, for a bunch of sailors and airmen away from civilization it was a treat (the officers were so jealous when they heard).
