Leave It To The United States To Provide A Sucessful Ice Breaker


An American icebreaker on its way to free Australian icebreaker that was sent to free Chinese icebreaker that was sent to free Russian icebreaker.

The U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Polar Star is responding to a Jan. 3rd request from the Australian Maritime Safety Authority to assist the Russian-Flagged Akademik Shokalskiy and Chinese-Flagged Xue Long that are reportedly ice-bound in the Antarctic.  The Russian and Chinese Governments have also requested assistance from the United States.

The Polar Star is the U.S. Coast Guard’s only active heavy polar ice breaker. The ship is 399 feet in length, its maximum speed is 18 knots (about 21 mph), it is able to continuously break six feet of ice at three knots, and able to break 21 feet of ice backing and ramming.

The Polar Star is specifically designed for open-water icebreaking with a reinforced hull and special icebreaking bow.

Let’s hope the fourth time is a charm.
