Spitsbergen with SV Antigua, September 2018

The weather forecast looked fine, so we set course for some more remote corners and reached Murchisonfjord on Nordaustland after a night under sail. We spent two full days in northern Hinlopen Strait, mostly in Murchisonfjord where we went hiking, explored the old research station in Kinnvika and its scenic surroundings and a small island where we found one of only two original crosses from the Pomor period which are still standing.

As we started to sail west again, we made a stop in Sorgfjord where the weather was so good that some were tempted to a polar plunge – a pretty refreshing experience!
