PELAGIC NEWSLETTER NO 17 - 9 JANUARY 2007 - PELAGIC AUSTRALIS METOLIUS SHACKLETON TRAVERSE Click here for more pictures from first S. Georgia trip of the season
Pelagic Australis is on the Antarctic Peninsula for her first of two "Ice With Everything" sailing expeditions. Recently returned from South Georgia after a successful Shackleton Traverse on our Metolius Expedition (see picture story below), skipper Stewart Richardson and crew Jess Hay and Lawrence Lagnado spent a quiet Christmas in Puerto Williams while gearing up for the Antarctic season.
While on South Georgia we made a rendezvous with the original Pelagic and
skipper Alec Hazell and mate Giselle Botha, exchanging Christmas presents (and
boat spare parts) in Blue Whale Harbour. Pelagic was engaged on a 40 day film
expedition for Norwegian television which included South Georgia, a successful
landing on Elephant Island and diving with leopard seals on the Peninsula. They
are now in Ushuaia and off again with a British climbing team on January 15th
for the Peninsula.
