Deception Island

05 March 2016
While Deception Island is very well protected, the bottom, at least in Whaler's Bay where we were, isn't all that great for holding anchors. We dragged anchor in a gust, reanchored twice, then added a second anchor. That worked for a day until another gust dragged both our anchors, and then we left Deception Island. This is how the anchorage looked when we left.
