Plenty to do onboard when crossing Drake Channel

The first couple of days, whilst crossing the Drake Passage were filled with activities: safety drills, environmental protection lectures, collecting the coat and boots, and vacuum cleaning outerwear to ensure no seeds, bugs or non-native biological matter enter Antarctica.
