At sea

Also this day at sea was a very busy day: For the last time on this voyage, our university on sea opened their doors. Captain Steinar Hansen welcomed us on the bridge and everybody got all his or her questions about navigation answered. And this was the day to enjoy our sauna, Jacuzzi or gym for the last time!
The bird flocks became denser and denser as we approached Cape Horn in beautiful sunshine! Several kinds of albatross, shearwaters and petrels filled the air, and we had fantastic view of the lighthouse and the famous albatross statue at the southernmost tip of the South American continent! Welcome back to South America!
In the evening, we celebrated the traditional Captain`s dinner and watched the multimedia presentation that our professional photographer Tori Hogan had put together throughout the voyage. She brought back all these ‘golden moments’ of this voyage, that all of us will remember for a long time!
