Kartesh to sail from Baydaratskaya Bay to Yugorsky Strait
The cold arctic breath reminded that the navigation season in the Northern Sea Route is coming to end. Weather forecasts warned about ice fields some 40 miles from Kartesh. It was probable that the ice could seal the passage from the Kara Sea to the Yugorsky Strait. Wasting no precious time, Kartesh set course for Vaygach Island.
