The Falklands Islands

The team arrived at Steeple Jason Island in the Falklands yesterday morning. The protection of the islands was welcome for all on board as it gave a respite from the rocking swells they had been enduring for the last two days.

The first excursion was to see the albatross colony, and the team reveled in the sensation of solid ground under their feet. After their excursion, the team got back on board and sailed to the East side of the island and docked at Stanley, the capital city of the islands.

Here the crew was able to stretch their legs again and explore the town. 

Aboard the Plancius, the SGI Crossing team practiced more skills including crevasses rescue techniques (pictured below). Before long they will be back on the open ocean making their way to the ultimate goal, South Georgia Island.

Stay tuned for more updates!
