NEWLETTER NO. 18 - 20 FEBRUARY 2007 - PELAGIC AUSTRALIS IN ANTARCTICA
Pelagic Australis is on the Peninsula for her second ‘Ice with Everything’
voyage and Pelagic has just returned to Ushuaia to conclude her Antarctic
season. Our Tierra del Fuego cruises are just around the corner and are fully
subscribed. But there are two places left, due to a cancellation, for our
popular RYA Delivery from Chile to Cape Town starting May 12th. Contact Skip
direct on firstname.lastname@example.org

Peninsula in January. The British High and Wild team enjoyed five days near and
below the Antarctic Circle in superb weather, skiing from base camp Pelagic
Next season is filling up fast, but the emphasis now is to attract the boldest
of our clients for two 28 day expedition cruises to South Georgia. Dates are:
October 13th to November 10th
November 10th to December 15th
The first early season trip will take into account all of the wildlife and
historical sites of interest, but is also the optimum time for skiers as the
snowline is often down to the beach in this period. Ski randonee (ski
mountaineering) can be a theme, but guests must be strong off piste skiers with
mountaineering experience. Guides can also be organized. The Shackleton Traverse
is an option, reserved for a stand alone group of experienced climber/skiers.
The second expedition beginning November 17th is when the wildlife is in full
swing, temperatures are a tad warmer, and the landscape somewhat greener. So we
are actively marketing this voyage for individuals wishing to experience the
island at its most prolific.
