Swimming pool fantasies

I am slightly laughing at myself, because really (I have learned from experience!) it is probably going to be more like the size of a large bathtub than what would properly be called a swimming pool - but I have just spent 10 minutes trying to find out the dimensions of the swimming pool on the Vavilov, the ship we will be taking to Antarctica from Tierra del Fuego! It might be that even if it is very tiny, I could use it to try and do some work on the wretched and much-neglected flip turns...

The pool at the Marriott Plaza in Buenos Aires should be pretty nice, it is outdoors though probably fairly small - and we have one night in the Hyatt on the way back (at least I think it is this hotel, unless there is another Hyatt also), and the pool there looks gorgeous - 25 metres!

I am still, too, holding out hope for a swim in the bay at Deception Island, but I do not have enough information about the itinerary to be sure that we will really stop there...
