Noorderlicht 2018

In March 2018, I had the opportunity to cross the Barents Sea on the s/v Noorderlicht, from Tromsø, Norway to Longyearbyen, Svalbard/Spitzbergen. Our journey and adventure begins in Norway with loading supplies, tying everything down, making the Noorderlicht seaworthy, and finally sailing out to the open sea. The journey takes three days and three hours, in which we encounter anything from strong winds and freezing temperatures, having to de-ice the ship and sail around the clock to make it to our destination in time. We sail through fjords, ice fields, rain and hail until we come out unscathed at the other side. Thanks to Mariëlle, Floris 1, Floris 2, Amaury, Gabriella, Josefin, Martijn and Willem for making this the wonderful experience that it was. When can I go again?
