Late 1st October night, while it was snowing, Vagabond set sails, heavily loaded, with 5 people and 5 dogs on board. We have been waiting for departure, and everyone was happy to see the lights of Longyearbyen getting away. Last night, we found our way in between drifting ice blocks and dropped anchor in front of the Hornsund polish station. Warm welcoming and very friendly time with the 9 people winter team. Weather should be good tomorrow to round South Cape and to reach Storfjord.
