PELAGIC EXPEDITIONS NEWS LETTER NO 14 - 12 JANUARY 2006
Pelagic Australis with a group of eight clients is well down the Antarctic Peninsula heading for the Antarctic Circle while Pelagic with six British mountaineers has just crossed the Drake Passage in support of their 42 day expedition.
Backtracking, in mid December Pelagic Australis returned to Stanley after successfully supporting the Templar Films Kayak Expedition to circumnavigate South Georgia. Although this British expedition was pipped to the post by a New Zealand group who rounded a month earlier in October in 18 days and who claim the outright first circumnavigation, our team did it in an astounding 13 days 8 hours and claim the first British record and the fastest time. Now, who out there will take them on?? Contact us if you would like to have a go!

We are getting more and more booked up far in advance and working on the 2007/2008 season now. The only short term space available which is a gem is South Georgia in October 2006 to see the elephant seal bulls battling for the harems on the wild beaches. Most of the other species of the island are also present so although this is early in the austral summer it is a rare opportunity to see all the island has to offer.
