At 6:00 a.m. we were out the deck, observing the tremendous current in the
Bellot Strait. On the horizon were 3 sailing vessels, awaiting the Henry
Larson escort. They tucked in behind the Akademik IOFFE, and we all sailed
through the heavy ice to open water. Tonight, after 150 knotical miles, we
plan to land at Victory Point. More to follow as the day unfolds.
Art classes are culminating beautifully, as we add finishing touches to our
masterpieces. We’ll have a display, during the Captain’s Dinner tomorrow
