S/Y Jennifer in Svalbard

S/Y Jennifer in Svalbard. We visited the walrus sanctuary Moffen at 80 degrees north, the Magdalena Fjord, the most scenic fjord in Svalbard, Dansköya where Andrée started his failed attempt to reach the North Pole 1897 in an air balloon (all perished), a beautiful lagoon Mushamna and giant glaciers. Photos: Crew in the Magdalena fjord; P-O, Skipper, Cecilia M, Maria, Cia E, Anders & Ulrica with S/Y Jennifer & glaciers in the background. Crew watching the Andrée monument build by crew from the Swedish warship Älvsnabben 1958  and skipper Lars besides Amundsen, the first man to traverse the North West Passage and to reach the South Pole 1911. Still no polar bears though!
