site.btaDay 7: First Significant Swell Felt Onboard
The first more significant swell was felt onboard the Bulgarian military research/survey vessel Sv. Sv. Kiril i Metodii (NAVAL RSV 421) north of Tunisia's coast on the seventh day of its journey. The waves were around 3 degrees Douglas on Monday afternoon. The current weather conditions are not affecting the ship's speed of nine knots or its course. Its next stop will be Cartagena, Spain, which is the first one along its journey towards Livingston Island, where NAVAL RSV 421 will join the 31st Bulgarian Antarctic Expedition.
NAVAL RSV 421 enjoyed smooth sailing so far during its journey from the Bulgarian port city of Varna, through the Bosporus, the Dardanelles, the Aegean and Ionian seas and into the Mediterranean.
BTA's Daily News editor Konstantin Karagyozov is the only member of the media who is travelling on the ship to Livingston Island and back, and will cover the Bulgarian expedition on site throughout their stay in Antarctica.
