Rockin and Rollin

The Vavilov meets the full force of The Drake. On the Beaufort scales this was considered a "strong gale" at 40+ knots (9 out of 12) and "heavy swells" up to 7 meters (7 out of 9). About a third of the passengers were not seen for the entire crossing and another third had shades of green.
