France and Josée are replacing Nicole, she went back with the helicopter, after 70 days alone on board Vagabond. Temperatures were quite high the last few days and pack ice is now more fragile, sometimes breaking up when walking on it. "Our arrival was a bit tricky! But it is so nice, I'm so happy to see the dogs, and the boat is in so good condition. She is heeling on port, water is a bit high in the toilets, tomorrow snow will be removed from the front deck. It was 20°C on board when we arrived, we turned a little down the heating!" France
