Runway broken again

Unfortunately the Barneo runway has cracked again and is unserviceable. The guys up there are now using the helicopters to scout for a new location for the camp and runway. We know this Russian team well, they are masters at solving problems and always find a solution.

So we are delayed here in Longyearbyen for at least 3 days, perhaps a week. Frustrating for all involved but one of the things we love most about the Arctic Ocean is its unpredictability.

I'll post updates as things unfold.
