For a fully illustrated account of the last two Antarctic trips during January (3D filming) and February (ski mountaineering) with Skip on board see

Pelagic Australis is on her last trip of the season after two successful Tierra del Fuego and Cape Horn cruises. She is now in the Beagle Channel before they begin the end of season delivery back to Cape Town with a full compliment of ‘students’ taking the RYA Yachtmaster Shorebased Course in Puerto Williams followed by the Pelagic Syllabus (all else to sail a boat) en route.

For a great feel about what these two week TDF trips are like, see the blog from a boat load of Aussies that just returned Down Under Read pdf of blog here>>  – amusing and entertaining? You bet! Mate Laura also blogged, from the crew’s perspective click here to view her blog

The original Pelagic has just landed in Uruguay for the winter and Chris Harris will be flying to Cape Town in June to start the refit of the big boat. She is available for cost effective solutions to see all the venues south. See Chris’s blog for the past season’s voyages . Dave Roberts, crew on Pelagic Australis the last two seasons will take over and skipper Pelagic in October. She is available for a cost effective South Georgia charter from end of October.


Next season is filling up fast, faster than last season at this point in time. We are now booking for 2013/14. However, we still are wide open for our October 2013 South Georgia cruise. I am open to suggestions!

Other trips on offer in 2013:

November 10th to December 8th South Georgia 3 places available

March 30th to April 12th Tierra del Fuego wide open

April 20th to May 3rd Tierra del Fuego wide open

May 11th to June 20th RYA Delivery to Cape Town 6 places available

Catch it all before it melts!

Cheers, Skip
