The Drake Passage is crossed by the RRS James Clark Ross several time each season en-route from The Falkland Islands to the Antarctic. Located near the Antarctic Peninsula, the Drake Passage is famous for its stormy seas and spectacular icebergs. This photograph shows the James Clark Ross after deck being awash having been engulfed by a large wave whilst steaming north to Stanley after a successful sampling cruise off the Antarctic Peninsula.
