Bellot Transit

We timed our arrival to coincide with a light incoming flow from the West. At this time it was about 3 knots, maybe a bit more than we wanted but at 15kts boat speed we made good progress against the current. It can run as hard as 8 knots at this point in the passage and this rock throws a mighty wake..This passage never freezes but its location was hard for the explorers to find. and impossible to transit safely under sail.
