Coastal Reconnaissance

Alain Hubert, René Robert, Kristof Soete and René Wagemans were part of the coastal reconnaissance team which left for Breid Bay on November 28th and returned to the Utsteinen base camp on December 11th. The mission of the reconnaissance team is to ensure and prepare the Ivan Papanin ship's unloading site, and to locate the transport route which will be followed to haul the containers from the coast to the Station. A trip to the coast is 190 km and an 18-hour drive inside a Prinoth tractor. The news is very good: the unloading site is ready for the ship's arrival.
