In January, I had the opportunity to sail to the Antarctic peninsula & kayak amongst icebergs, penguins, seals, whales and historic bases. The wild beauty, the camaraderie of a small team & the mixture of camping on the snow some nights and eating home cooked meals on the yacht was a winning combination. This October, I hope to return to the area for a sailing and kayaking trip to the amazing South Georgia island, which boasts even richer wildlife than Antarctica. Shaped like a curved and fractured whale bone, the 170km long wildlife sanctuary has mountains along its spine and is draped with glaciers, icecaps and snowfields. The sanctuary in the southern ocean is home to thousands of animals and birds. Would you like to come on a month long trip to this amazing island – sailing to and from the Falkland islands & exploring bays draped with seals, albatross and penguins?
More information about the yacht, the Spirit of Sydney can be found on their website or Facebook page. If you are interested in this amazing trip then please send an email to either myself or Cath Hew.
There will also be another sailing and kayaking trip to the Antarctic peninsula in February 2015. Again, please contact me or Cath.
