Leaving South Georgia

The seas have been large since leaving South Georgia and today was no exception.

There was one lecture on sea birds and a biography of Ernest Shackleton, "A Life in Poetry" by Field Expert Jim Mayer. 

The Seas continued to prevent steady footing on the ship and ropes were put up in the hallways during the evening to provide handrails. Hopefully the team can get a good night's rest. Tomorrow, the crew is excited to participate in the second ever Shackleton Poetry slam! Stay tuned in for some awesome original poems, and to find out who is the most talented poet on the team!

Update for November 16th:

The team started off with a visit to Right Wale Bay to see the largest King Penguin Colony on the Island. After a short time on land the wind began to pick up and by the time the teams were on board the zodaics and headed back to the ship, the wind had increased significantly. Needless to say, wind gusts of up to 72 knots made for and exciting return to the Plancius. 

The ship left South Georgia Island in the afternoon and set sail for Ushuaia, Argentina. In the evening, there was a showing of a Shackleton movie for any on board.
