At sea – Febru­ar 17, 2017

The­re is a fair and ste­ady bree­ze blo­wing around the sou­thern­most cor­ner of New Zea­land, the sun is shi­ning, warm­ly and stron­gly, the air war­mer than I have expe­ri­en­ced it for quite some time.
Exact­ly 100 pas­sen­gers from almost just as many count­ries have found their way to our ship, the Ort­eli­us, and ever­y­bo­dy is curious what the next weeks will bring. It is the begin­ning of an Ant­ar­c­tic Odys­sey, more than 6000 miles are ahead of us.

A light, plea­sant bree­ze is blo­wing during the first few miles, we have set cour­se south for Camp­bell Island. Two years ago, we spent more than a day loo­king at the island in force 10 winds and bey­ond. Which was, in a way, impres­si­ve and beau­tiful, but going ashore is the real thing. Will it work this time? We are curious, fin­gers crossed. It would be a dream come true.
