The Bulgarian military research vessel Sv. Sv. Kiril i Metodii (NAVAL RSV 421) increased her average speed to 11 knots in the morning hours of the 34th day of her voyage to Antarctica. The ship is sailing to the second intermediate stop, Mar del Plata.
On Sunday at 10:30 hrs board time, (06:30 hrs local time, 11:30 Eastern European Time) the vessel was 33 nautical miles southeast of Cabo Frio and the Araruama Lagoon, maintaining a south-southwest course.
Since departing the port of Varna on December 27, the ship has covered nearly 4,500 miles, crossing the Black, Sea of Marmara, Aegean and Mediterranean Seas, as well as much of the Atlantic Ocean.
BTA's Daily News editor Konstantin Karagyozov is the only member of the media who is travelling on board the ship to Livingston Island and back, who will cover the Bulgarian expedition on site throughout the stay in Antarctica.
