Spitsbergen 2013

An online log of Atlantis' travels and adventures to Svalbard

We are on top of the world

Posted by admin on June 9, 2013

Something of an exaggeration, we admit, but it does describe how pleased we are to have made it safely to the start point of the next phase of our expedition.  At 0110 on Sunday 9th June, after a cracking day's sail along the 50 or s miles of the Isfjord, we brought Atlantis alongside in Longyearbyen; the capital and administrative centre of Svalbard.   The boat and crew are all in one piece.  As expected, comms are now difficult so more follows once we have established a reliable internet connection.  In the meantime, we may just manage a wee dram to mark our arrival.
