South to Gerlache Straits.

All well here. A bit of a cluster yesterday at Punta Arenas as the weather was poor down at our end in King George island so a lot of waiting at the hotel in Punta Arenas for the guests and then…Rush to get to the plane for a weather window.  Then they asked us to Move Rosehearty out 1/2 a mile more just before the plane landed to allow the plane a very low approach..There was not much Vis.

However it all got sorted and we are tonight on the way South. Weather was again indifferent today with Snow, 29f, and East winds at 15kts or more and water temp of 29f. But it has cleared now and the sun is setting here at 2300 and due back up at 0300. There is ice around but we have good vis right now.

We passed this guy on the way past Deception. 11nm long and 5 miles Wide it is named A57A and moving SW at about 12-15nm a Day! We chose not to get too close this time.
