They will be working on behalf of the South Georgia government for February and March supporting a construction team building an environmental boardwalk over the albatross colony on Prion Island.

Pelagic Australis with skipper Stew Richardson and mate Jessica Hay successfully brought back their team of 12 British Schools Exploration Society members from South Georgia mid December.

After a Christmas alongside the famous Micalvi in Puerto Williams they were joined on the New Year by Skip, crew Ollie Hicks and the team of Jon Bowermaster’s Oceans Eight Expedition, sponsored by National Geographic. We are currently on the west coast of the Antarctic Peninsula paddling south to Marguerite Bay. go for the daily updates or see photos below for progress so far:
