Yacht crew clear the path in polar south

M/Y Enigma XK crew, from left to right, bosun Bruno Nabti and deckhands Brad Pepler and Henry de Landtsheer, launch a tender while on charter in Antarctica. When they are not ferrying guests to close encounters with whales and glacier hikes among the penguins, crew use the tenders to push stray icebergs out of the boat’s drift area at anchor. Enigma XK, a 234-foot (71m) expedition yacht originally launched in 1987 as a fishery patrol vessel, has been on charter in the polar south since November.
