#NBP1902 is declared fit and will depart at 3:30 pm (Punta Arenas time)!
Straits of Magellan, here we come!
We are finally getting underway, heading west instead of east to cross the Drake passage.
For the next 24 hours, we should be able to get emails fairly easily, so now is a really good opportunity to submit your questions: Linda.firstname.lastname@example.org
Your name, where you are from and your question (and our answers) will be posted on the blog. The best question (and I don’t yet know how they will be judged) will be announced at the end of the cruise along with an Antarctic swag prize!
