Quote from Fedor

“One iceberg was on my port side, another on starboard side. I sailed between them. The bergs are around 500 meters in size.  The wind is very light and we slowly passed them at 5 knots. Today is very good visibility and moderate swell so I can see for miles around the boat.

I am in complicated situation now – we need to sail South towards Cape Horn, but even on 53 South there are 3 bergs in 48 hours and every degree South will increase chances to see more bergs”.
