Another update from the 3Y0Z Bouvet Island DXpedition team:
Our captain has decided that it is in the best interest of safety and expediency to proceed directly to Capetown, South Africa rather than Punta Arenas, Chile. We are now heading north to avoid the possibility of encountering ice. Currently, there is no ice in sight or on radar. In due time, we will head easterly toward Capetown.
Our entire team is safe. Most are resting in their bunks and in good spirits. We will keep the amateur radio community and our familie informed, as we continue our journey.
