Fedor Konyukhov battered by storms


Fedor Konyukhov is currently circumnavigating Antarctica solo as a dry run – if that’s possible in the deep south – of the inaugural Antartica Cup. This race has been planned for a number of years and starts and finishes in Albany, Western Australia. It’s late in the season to be that far south and Fedor has endured more than his fair share of storms. He has also had to sail further north than he would have liked to keep clear of ice.

Just look at the size and colour of this sea! It makes me, sitting comfortably in a heated office, feel very, very cold. www.antarcticacup.com
