Longyearbyen – Skansbukta, 01st June 2019

Brave Marathon-runners do their work in and near Longyearbyen, while we get ready for action on Antigua. In the afternoon, we are ready to set sail on Antigua, and that is exactly what we actually do as soon as Captain Robert has said hello to everybody. A brief introduction turns us all into real sailers, and soon the canvas goes up into the breeze, and the reasonably warm sun sees us sailing out of Adventfjord and northwards, across Sassenfjord.

We have set course for Skansbukta, where we drop the anchor for the night. It is a wonderful northern evening in good company, many here on board have been on Antigua more often than some of the crew!

Ingolf has got a lot of work with his telescope, there are plenty of reindeer and several arctic foxes on the tundra and hundreds of common eiders with an amazing number of king eiders amongst them.
