NEWLETTER NO. 19 - 1 JUNE 2007 - 2006/2007 SEASON ROUND UP AND 2007/2008 OPPORTUNITIES
Skipper Stewart Richardson, mates Jessica Hay and Lawrence Lagnado along with
the sailing crew of Pelagic Australis have left Stanley in the Falkland Islands
on the last leg of their 42 day RYA Delivery from Chile to Cape Town – ETA Cape
Town on June 22nd. This will wrap up a season that saw us near to capacity. The
tried and trusted Pelagic (now approaching her 20th year in October) was put to
bed for the winter in Stanley by skipper Alec Hazell and mate Giselle
Botha and they are currently warming up in the Cape Town winter. They will
return in September for another season South.
Don’t be misled, the island is a treasure trove of wildlife, history, spectacular geography and dynamic weather! It is commonly known as the wild island and if you are bold enough to go there you won’t be disappointed. We still have space for a few individuals on our October 13th to November 10th 2007 voyage and also either a group or a collection of individuals for November 17th to December 15th. Prices are negotiable depending on the situation.
Email Skip asap on firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
See the full schedule for Pelagic Australis through to June 2009 in the Programme Section of the web site. Also keep in mind that Pelagic is available for a more cost effective option to all our destinations – barring mid January to mid April 2008 which are already booked.
