  3. I would say Northest because you are at the northern edge of the eastward flowing
    Southern ocean current that flows around the Antarctic continent from west to east and the cold water flows up the coast of South America's western coast as well as continuing around the earth below Tierra del Fuego at the tip of South America (the dreaded Cape Horn where the wind and current are against you beating from Boston to San Francisco between South America and the Antarctic in the cold)
