Today I noticed another article about Fedor Konyukkov's progress in sailing around Antarctica. He has now passed the halfway point in sailing on his own around the continent. The half way point is Gate 9, which is named after Ernest Shackleton. The article also talks about the Antarctic Convergence Zone and Iceberg Alley. Additionally, he continues to be routed above this zone because parts of the track are close due to icebergs.
