Jean-Claude Gascard, coordinator of the European project Damocles we are working for, is on board Vagabond for one week. The day before his arrival, we were still enjoying a beautiful midnight sun... Unfortunately, the weather has been bad for the last 4 days, snow and wind are keeping us inside the boat, impossible to carry on sea ice measurements for now. So we are looking at last data collected, and we are comparing them with those gathered during the last 4 years. It is exciting to discover with him some original events, unexplained so far.
