At open sea with a bearing for Murmansk

Published 13.08 in category In the Footsteps of Nansen

This is Børge again. We’re sailing the open sea! The SS “Athene” picked us up today, and now we are riding a stiff northern gale through three–four metre swells. All our equipment is on board, we’re on board and we are in fine shape.

It was a great moment when we saw the sailboat, skipper Thorleif Thorleifsson and his crew – and finally got to leave Franz Joseph Land after spending three weeks camped at Cape Flora. It’s really nice to finally be on the move again! The skipper is charting a course for Murmansk.


Captain Thorleif Thorleifsson is in full control!
