site.btaDay 43: RSV 421 Moving at Around 10 Knots, Ahead of Schedule by Three to Four Hours
The Bulgarian naval research vessel Sv. Sv. Kiril i Metodii (NAVAL RSV 421) continues to sail towards Cabo Blanco, keeping a course south-southwest. The ship is maintaining an average speed of some 10 knots, moving ahead of schedule by three to four hours, said Flotilla Admiral Boyan Mednikarov, Rector of the Nikola Vaptsarov Naval Academy in Varna (on the Black Sea).
The ship is in an area with favourable weather conditions, but that is expected to change soon due to a cyclone forming south of RSV 421's current location. The ship should remain in its periphery, keeping a course of 210 degrees south-southwest along the shores of South America.
BTA's Daily News editor Konstantin Karagyozov is the only member of the media who is travelling on board the ship to Livingston Island and back and will cover the Bulgarian expedition on site throughout the stay in Antarctica.
