We've made the Drake Passage - but it was rougher going North
The Drake passage is unpredictable because of the weather. Moments ago, the waves washed up against the window on the 5th deck where i'm sitting. The waves are huge. So we are passing up the opportunity to swim to Cape Horn. We may return to Antarctica by plane - if the weather permits. For the time being, I've made a sketch that captures something of what we experienced.
