Léonie was only 4 weeks old when daylight became permanent, by the end of March. Darkness has been back for 2 weeks, and since yesterday, the sun is more than 12 hours per day below the horizon: Léonie is discovering the night!

Vagabond will be soon ready for the next wintering, after 3 weeks of maintenance and supplying in Ny-Alesund. Regularly, short trips and little parties were interrupting this essential period before the winter. Tomorrow we will sail to Longyearbyen, holds and stores full with food and fuels.
