Departing Punta Arenas

We left Punta Arenas late afternoon after a two-day delay, because we had to wait for some critical cargo. Now we're on the way out towards the Atlantic from where we will cross the famous and feared Drake Passage. The picture was taken as we pulled away from the pier in Punta Arenas, and it shows the brand new British research ship James Cook. Currently we are still in Magellan's Strait and are enjoying a beautiful evening. Tomorrow morning we'll be out in the open ocean and things are expected to get a bit rougher.
