Svalbard is still…

Arctic Sea Ice 220520

… surrounded by thick ice โ„, but by August and September this will change and with the experience of my weather routers Meeno Schrader and Sebastian Wache I will manage to find a route around Spitsbergen, Svalbard โ›ต๐ŸŒ, even if it is covered with drifting ice.

After all, Meeno and his “Wetterwelt” already accompanied Ellen Mac Arthur safely across storm-lashed oceans ๐Ÿ’ฆ in the early 2000s!

The Meteo Pilot software ๐Ÿ’ป, developed by โ€œWetterweltโ€, which I use on board, not only has numerous ways of entering weather reports and observations to give a clear picture of the current weather situation, but also to compare data and facts from over 20 years and its evaluations paint a clear, but unfortunately somewhat gloomy picture.

“Climate change and the dramatic decline in polar ice is actually happening and if we don’t act quickly and switch to renewable energy โ™ป๐Ÿ”‹๐Ÿ”Œ wherever possible, among other things, the consequences will be catastrophic!!!”

That’s why only renewable energy from wind ๐Ÿ’จ, hydro ๐ŸŒŠ and solar ๐ŸŒž is used on board our IY Open60AAL!

To be continued…
