Drake Passage

23 February 2016
Richard
We had surprisingly light winds for our crossing of the Drake Passage. The Drake Passage is where storms traveling eastward around the Southern Ocean are squeezed by the mountains of Antarctica and the Andes into the gap between South America and the Antarctic Peninsula. Typically, this area is thought of as having the stormiest seas on earth. We really lucked out, experiencing only light and moderate winds.

We saw our first iceberg (pictured) at 61 16' South , 062 52' West
