Looking at the picture which accompanies my last entry about failing to go ashore at Cape Horn, you might wonder what all the fuss was about. The sea looks reasonably calm, doesn’t it?
Proof, if it were needed, of how still photographs can be deceptive. To give you an indication of what conditions were like, here are a couple of short videos showing the sea conditions as we headed back towards Ushuaia and the shelter of the Beagle Channel.
Be warned: you’ll need a strong stomach or – like me – be dosed up on Stugeron to watch without uncomfortable side-effects.
