Good news! The Sailing SOUTH team is complete!

Further planning has begun.
First of all, we are mentally travelling on the map … We consider route planning, possible destinations and landing sites on the Antarctic Peninsula, the South Shetland Islands and in South Georgia. We rummage through maps and books and browse through the travel notes or logbooks of some of the sailors before us.

Many things are possible, some are set, Elephant Island is the mother of the first idea and the centrepiece of the expedition…

Will we be able to set foot on the windswept island like Shackleton?
We don’t know, we can only prepare well and remain flexible. Nature has the last word in Antarctica – wind and weather will ultimately decide.
