The ship turns around due to the escalating number of tragedies. Topman Leonid Volkov orders his fellow topmen to work the sails because of strong wind. While Li is climbing up to the topsail, a bolt of lightning flashes and strikes him dead.
Things of interest
- The identities of topmen Huang Li, Wei Lee, and Jie Zhang can be deduced as their footwear is clearly visible and can be compared to that seen in their hammocks in A Bitter Cold, part 1.
- Crab riders can be seen climbing onto the ship on both port and starboard sides.
This memory is accessed via a body on top of the capstan on the main deck.
Only the rigging from the bow between the foremast and the main mast and the maintop are accessible. The exit is towards the foremast.
- [Volkov] "Main sail hauled up! Secure the braces and lower the topsail! Work fast, the wind is alive!"
