Fedor Konyukhov

Fedor passes half-way point of Antarctica Cup Racetrack

Fedor crossed longitude 62W - half way point of the Antarctica Cup Racetrack at 1400 UTC 13 March 08 and is now heading for Albany. By this time maxi yacht “Trading Network Alye Parusa” sailed 7.800 n. miles which means total distance for Fedor in Antarctica Cup Race Track 2008  will be above 15.000 n. miles.

In the meantime Antarctica Cup race control and Fedor@@apos@@s shore team are collaborating to determine the best strategy for Fedor to navigate above @@apos@@Iceberg Alley@@apos@@ the extensive field of icebergs that stretches from east of South Georgia Island across to south of South Africa which are thought to be fragments off the giant iceberg A53a (47k x 14k) located to the east of South Georgia Island that recently split in two.
