Latitude/Longitude: 53,10,19S/70,54,15W
Course: 0 degrees
Speed: 0 knots
Status: Day 25 – anchored close to Punta Arenas
Notes: If you are checking the latitude and longitude in these details you will see that today we are, as the status confirms, not actually docked. That is because there is no dock large enough here to accommodate this ship. As a result, passengers are ferried ashore using the ships tenders, which can also be used as lifeboats if needed. The British generally tend to talk about the weather when they have nothing else to talk about, but on this occasion it is not so! Things change so quickly here – temperatures, sunshine, rain showers, the lot. We went past one weather station a while ago that is manned by two families – their nearest shops are a 50-mile boat trip away!!!
