3 Сентябрь, 2018

  

Was approaching the polar winter. 29 February marked the 100 days upon leaving Rio de Janeiro. They have been almost entirely in heavy, hard against the harsh South Pole guards ferocious winds and ice.

Cook wrote, that no one will be able to continue it, "and therefore the Earth, Maybe and the South made my item, will never be investigated.

Fog, snowstorms, strong cold make swimming extremely dangerous ". All this fully experienced Russian sailors. Tired and people and shljupy is one needed a rest, other repairs. Coming from solid ice, Bellingshausen decides to separate from the "peace", to explore the space of possible. The meeting is planned to Aid Island shljupov.

  

  

It should be noted, that all sailing Bellingshausen avoided known ways and walked into unknown seas its self dear.

Southern lights helps mariners: It shines every night from dawn to dusk. But during the 20 days of the storm such, that "the sea and air as would be messed up", all sails izorvany. The Court lay among the soaring waves like mountains without sails, by the will of the wind. In between storms calm with rain and kachkoj.

22 March East came to the place, where was marked on maps Convivial island. However, the island was not found. Convivial Island give the search volume, who's happier me in this search», with annoyance writes Bellingshausen. "Gaining the Spaniards find very difficult», writes Lazarev. Apparently, inaccuracy of instruments and inadequate education of seafarers, bringing about the island on the map, led to this unfortunate errors.

25 March on "East" finally breathed freely. Heat. Clear weather. Dried, clean. All hilarious, joking, play. 29 entered the port Zhakson (Sydney, Australia). 7 April arrived there and "peace". Australia met with extraordinary respect and cordiality of the courageous Russian seafarers, infiltrators for the first time since the Cook to Antarctica. Parking space ships took the best place, against the city itself, where is typically not allowed foreign vessels. In honor of the sailors were continuous formal and private dinners, balls, PM, trips outside the city. "We tried to show gratitude, regardless of, that genuine hospitality breaking away from us a lot of lessons on service ". But there were many lessons.
