Hurricane hits twice

Pitoraq

Within four days we were hit by two hurricanes, or ‘Pitoraqs’, thundering down from the 10,000′ inland icecap at more than 120 knots (240kph). We were trapped: our boat engine didn’t work so we couldn’t continue the kayak expedition south. Plus we had no money for food for fuel, so we couldn’t return to sea and escape the winter freeze.
