Back at SeaWe are back at sea, and back in comms. Remarkably, at 78° 20' North, within minutes of leaving the Adventfjorden where Longyearbyen is tucked away from the worst of the weather, our trusty satcom terminal once again locked onto its geostationary equatorial friend and the bits and bytes started flowing once again. We didn't expect anything in the fjord; nor did any alternative satellite service work either. Now, our link is back and blog readers will have to put up with our ramblings once again - for a while - we really do not know how far north this 'channel' will last. The same can be said for the ice! The most recent ice chart (above) shows a narrow channel of open water leading north along the west coast of Svalbard which we hope shall allow us the opportunity to extend our travels towards the northern tip of the archipelago. Once there, we can make a judgement about whether the ice is sufficiently open to permit us to round the northern most point and complete a circumnavigation of Spitzbergen or Svalbard as a whole. En route, we have places to go and much to explore.
