“Sailing without visibility in places where there’s ice, possibly growlers etcetera is tiring, it stretches you, your nerves and also psychologically. Because you can’t make a mistake, you need extreme vigilance, and this produces high fatigue levels. (…) Steering a boat of this size, at this speed, in this type of sea, is really very stressful. We feel tired, I sense that the whole crew’s tired. The mist, the ice, all that creates enormous nervous tension and this nervous tension leads to stress and fatigue. (…) Recharging by heat up is not really possible: if we heat up inside at the moment, there’s too much of a thermal shock between inside and outside, and when people go up, they suffer even more. So we need to get our bodies used to living in a cold environment.”
