Some figures

Present trip has number „15” for this year 2011 (15/2011). Crew members: 13 persons. In whole 4-stage expedition the total amount of 25 scientists will take part, mostly from IO PAN and including 5 persons from Gdańsk University and 2 persons from Italy (University of Florence). It‘s a really logistic challenge for IO PAN to match all exchanges, departures and arrivals for all scientist which one part is travelling on board, other joint the ship by plane.

Each crossing of the Artic Circle by the ship is recorded – a new polar bear in blue is painted on the bridge. s/y Oceania is going to „gain„ next, this time the 25th Bear!

There is already no place for such a big amount of bears, so now the ship has only one big blue polar bear with the actual number.
