En dérive

  • Equipe IPEV on ice

Again, Vagabond is moored to an ice block and is drifting with pack ice (0,4 knots to the North!). This time, there is not enough open water to sail ahead, so we wait. Wind, current and thaw are changing tirelessly the scenery, a way can open any time. Two days ago, for summer solstice, despite the sun still high at midnight, and a sea like a mirror, it was fog that made us look for a place to stop for the "night". No need to keep going if we cannot see properly the animals (seals, whales, many birds, still no walrus...)! So everybody enjoyed walking on pack ice after several days wandering between ice floes without disembarking.
