Across the Drake

Added 06 Jan 2014

We awake to bumpy seas. Storm force 10 or 11 apparently. Many guests stay in their cabins, Richard included. For the hearty, there are plenty of activities. Lectures to attend and a Wellington boots fitting session (you have to wear rubber boots when landing in Antarctica)! Whatever you do today, you have to hold on tight. We are reliably informed that a row full of attendees at one lecture ended up out of their chairs due to a domino effect following a big wave. Apparently all guests were OK and in fits of giggles. Staff report? Dawn looked after our guests. Richard continued to sleep ... previous clients will know it is what he does when crossing the Drake Passage.
