My apologies. He spent a year at school in Australia and did a fair amount of touring. He also likes to peek over my shoulder.

I have the following location to offer with two somewhat useless photos. More photos may be added. Most of them are useless. The big hint is that these photos were taken in September of last year.

Alaska, Port Clarence.

Not that I know Alaska and I have never heard of Port Clarence... but hey, how wrong could I be.

September is beacaus the sea ice has mostly melted. Those lumps in the top photo arn't ice but after the anual Gay Mans Shave-A-Thon they leave a bit of shaving cream.

The cloud on the horizon in the top photo is Russia. Because every one knows that commos live in near darkness.

Close but not quite. You're on the correct continent but not the right country.

More hints: This is not a cruising destination. They receive a couple of annual sea lifts. Fishing here is amazing. So is this local vehicle:

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Getting closer, but you are a little too far Northwest. The community is located actually on the Arctic Circle (Northern latitude).

Nunavut is the correct territory.

The community is known for creating Arctic Circle Inukshuk's such as this:

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Never having been that far north the Arctic is something of an unknown quantity but how about Repulse Bay ?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Nice work and back to you tdw. The Canadian Arctic is some of my favourite stomping grounds for work, although I don't think they've seen many sailboats.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Now that was a surprise. Stab in the dark but sitting right on the Arctic circle RB seemed worth a shot.

Have a go at this then. Second pic may well have been taken same time as your Repulse Bay shot.
