Would you mind constructing a paragraph or two, describing what your point is supposed to be? It's kind of difficult to respond when you don't actually tell us what you mean.
I'm going to side with the white supremacists.

This is a well documented circumnavigation of Antarctica. If, as you have postulated in the past, Antarctica is impossible to cross or circumnavigate then how did they trick us. Or are you going to suggest that Antarctica is actually an Island that is navigable?

You were on the boat that did this, I presume?
Quote from: Arthur Schopenhauer
All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

I was not but know people who were involved in the coordination of the Race.

Ah, I see where you might be going with this... if you did not do it how do you accept it as truth. Am I warm?  ;)

He'll probably say that the sailors who did this thought they were circumnavigating the continent, whereas they were actually just doing a circle around the Earth. Their navigational instruments were tampered with by conspiracy protectors, and made them go in a circle. And then he'll probably say that the boats somehow traveled faster than they would normally to make up for the extra distance traveled instead of how long it would be to circumnavigate Antarctica.
The FE theory is so fake/all its "believers" are trolls just so you know.

Please indulge me and address the fact that the Farther RE "South" you go towards Antarctica the faster a Circumnavigation of the Earth can be attained. Which is in serious opposition to your "theory" that Antarctica is the beginning of the Ice Wall therefor at the outermost reaches of the FE "Plate".

I am always willing to read and be enlightened but until someone can adequately refute the data of many Sailors who have single handed or fully crewed non stop around the world I can not accept the FE "Plate" theory as it would take exponentially longer to get around the world than it does. Current record 59 Days via a Trimaran from France to France passing all Capes to Port.

Three links to Web showing Non Stop Circumnavigation of the World.
www.trimaran-idec.com
www.barcelonaworldrace.org/en
www.vendeeglobe.org/en/

This one is a Circumnavigation of Antarctica from Australia to Australia.

Multiple stops.
www.volvooceanrace.org

No I have not participated in these races but do have friends who have. it is a Short List of Round the World Races that have occurred over the past few years showing circumnavigation of the World.

So a journey around the Earth staying at the same latitude beginning in Morocco is faster than one that sets out from Finland?

Classic Robosteve, Picking and choosing snippets of a post but never addressing the full topic... because there is absolutely no merit to the FE theory so you need to nit pick.

Would you care to address my post? I am willing to listen.
