Aurore, Léonie, France and I arrived at Liland last Friday. In front of this little Norwegian village, between Narvik and Lofoten Islands, Vagabond, at anchor, is waiting for us since last summer. Léonie is looking forward to show her boat to her younger sister! While waiting for the wind to reduce, to make it easier to embark, we are enjoying the beautiful and comfortable house from our friends.
Coming out of 2 films about Vagabond's scientific missions, for Océanopolis polar center and auditorium.
In less than 3 months, we will start sailing on board Ecotroll, heading for East Greenland. This amazing boat is under construction at Olbia boat yard, at Hyères (south of France). Few days ago, the whole team was there, and we could discover the smallest of the 3 Omega sails we will use for the trip (20, 40 and 60 square meters).
Talk about Vagabond's last expedition, by Eric, at Yacht Club de France, 8 pm.
