Photos: South Georgia Island, [yet more] great pics...
 
Regulars will remember our photos from Antarctica, Patagonia, and the Falklands from a little while ago.

Itís been promised for a while, and itís finally here: Peterís expedition out into the deep South Atlantic, to remote and inhospitable South Georgia.

This is the most extensive write-up and collection of photos that weíve put online to date. There are over 100 photos spread across nine pages, so put some time aside and enjoy. Online now, follow the link:

Peter and Kiwi Roa were at South Georgia for ten weeks, exploring a world of seafaring history, ruined industry, and of course largely untouched nature and wildlife. Seals, penguins, albatrosses... The island is deep within the Antarctic Convergence and at the limit of attainable expedition cruising. Peter even managed to do a little damage to the boat on both passages. Enjoy the story and photos!

Thanks all for the comments, much appreciated!

Blue Water Sailing has the print version out now (September issue). Check it out.

That's for the Americans of course, Sailing Today (UK) did their version in the August edition.

Excellent write up and amazing photos; but how dare you....and I'm quoting you:
"The KEP station is a tiny settlement of just a few buildings, the current ones built or re-built in 2001, and a dock for support shipping. The British have posted representation here since 1909, with a few interruptions over the years Ė most famously in 1982 when the Argentines made their first occupation of the British South Atlantic territories that led to the Falklands War. King Edward Cove saw mild hostilities during the conflict, with three Argentines killed during the invasion against a detachment of Royal Marines and another during the later recapture.

Really??? Get your history facts checked, that's all I'm going to say.
Not blaming you, that's what those Brits probably told you, so no hard feelings.

Otherwise I really enjoyed your report.
