Drake Passage

Wind and waves of the previous days have calmed down and we spent a clear and sunny day at sea observing sea birds. In our lecture halls, the expedition staff presented interesting talks on the history, geology and biology of Antarctica. In the evening, we were invited by our fellow passenger Antoine Braastad, who's family owns the Cognac destillery Braastad to a tasting of his fantastic Cognac!
