Trial Run
On June 10, we started out on our first sea voyage in a long time…

On the IJsselmeer there appeared to be a problem with the engine: the oil pressure dropped, etc. Fortunately, we were still in the Netherlands and got to work on the engine in Harlingen’s harbor. After some real consideration, we decided to bring it “to the next level”, giving the Anne-Margaretha a fresh new engine, and is it a beauty!
Our fantastic crew supported and helped us to get this job done expedititiously, with sharing a great spirit of cooperation and good workmanship.
The new engine has now been installed, connected, and is undergoing final operational tests. It is just about ready for many sea trips head. Our team is psyched to leave for the pack ice on Thursday, June 24, and hope you can join us!
Because of this “trial run”, we did adjust the sailing schedule, canceling the 2nd Spitsbergen trip. Read on for opportunities for adventures northbound…

Of course we look forward to be in Longyearbyen (Spitsbergen) in time for the B8 trip:

Thank goodness, things are going in the right direction with many European countries opening up now due to high vaccination rates. The travel app will certainly help us moving forward.
