Northern Sea Route latest Nov 19 UPDATE

Nov 19: Icebreaker VAYGACH is leading convoy of Far East bound 5 ships, including NORDIC NULUUJAAK, GOLDEN SUEK, NORDIC QINNGUA, GOLDEN PEAR, UHL FUSION. Have a look at convoy track, it’s a broken curve, usual tactics in battling ice cover and floes. Icebreaker is leading ships, trying to use each and every ice-free patch/area her helicopter can find. All in all, everything is so far, absolutely normal, something to be expected from NSR late fall transit routine. Convoy is already in Chukcha sea, will reach Bering Strait in probably 2-3 days or maybe even earlier, Arctic is unpredictable in this sense, up until last minutes and meters of transit.
West bound ships, including MV KUMPULA, are stuck in ice north of Kotelny island, bordering Laptev and East Siberian seas, waiting most probably, for icebreaker TAYMYR, presently positioned in Obskaya Gulf.
