At sea – February 18th-21st, 2017

The Southern Ocean does have a good reputation for bad reason. Talk about the furious fifties and the screaming sixties. That brings a couple of question marks regarding our wellbeing during the days of the crossing and the time frame. A force 10 on the nose, and you can suffer and watch your precious time melt like ice in the sunshine.

And this time? King Neptune is with us so far. We have got a lively westerly breeze for some time, but it just brings a little training session in becoming a sailor. No more than that. We can keep an average speed of a good 11 knots, which takes us in a mere four days from Campbell Island to Cape Adare. An easy and relaxed crossing, we are doing well!

Antarctica, we are coming!

The picture shows our good helicopter pilots and mechanics while preparing flights in Antarctica. We hope to give them a lot of work in a few days time!
