First Russian-Ukrainian sailing polar expedition! По-русски
Ship's log-book

After Corinth, in area of Athens on way to Dora, we have got into a really intensive traffic.

22 October, 2012

Almost all the time there are 8-10 ships in proximity to us. At night it worries us, if to speak slightly. Of course, we have radar and AIS, and side lights are on, but still the circumstances keep us in tension. Quite good wind on the bow has risen, but doesn’t add much to our speed, as quite big head wave has appeared.
We have passed 168 miles the last day. Tomorrow we’ll pass the Dardanelles, and the Bosphorus is not far there. We can’t wait to get home to Sevastopol. We hope to be there at night on the 25th of October.
