GPS Tracking – We Arrive At East Falkland Island

February 28th, 2010 at 8:35 pm (AST) by Jake Richter

After about two days at sea from South Georgia, we have finally arrived at the Falkland Islands. Tonight we have anchored in Berkeley Sound, located in East Falkland Island (there’s a West Falkland Island too), and tomorrow morning we head for the capital of Stanley for a self-guided walking tour in the morning, and then a visit to a hydroponics plant in the afternoon.

There’s a beautiful full moon out tonight as well, and now that we’re in safe harbor, only minor motion. Very nice after two days of constant rolling and rocking.

The GPS track for the last couple of days is below.
