Update on Russian Sailing Around Antarctica

Here is an update on Fedor Konyukhov's progress in attempting to sail around Antarctica on his own. He has currently around Cape Horn and facing the famous bad weather conditions of wind and rough seas here. Just reading how he cannot always tell the difference between ocean and sky and the radar sounding alarms and false alarms for icebergs makes you realize that man sure does not control everything and are not even able to predict everything. It also shows that Fedor Konyukhov has that explorer spirit that you do not see too much of anymore.
