Lovely - a boat called "Eira" exploring the Arctic. Eira is Welsh for "snow"

(It's pronounced as in "Ira Gershwin", by the way.)

And the next time anything left Spitzbergen (that I know of) was the 1897 aerial (balloon) voyage of Salamon Andree and his two companions, that failed and ended in total tragedy (though not specifically discovered until the remains of the three men and their camp were found on White Island in 1930).
