The seas and wind moderated through the night and there was a healthy crowd at breakfast, looking forward to our passage into Antarctic waters, south of 60◦ south latitude. By crossing that line we officially are in Antarctia, though it would take most of the day to transit the Polar Front and make the ecological jump (figuratively) into the colder Southern Ocean. The literal jump into the ocean, a true polar plunge, may well come later on in the voyage.
