Antarctic Peninsula exploration by ski, Jan 23
by Steve Kentish
After a couple of annual delays due to Covid, we finally set off to explore parts of the Antarctic peninsula by ski, also carrying kayaks. We sailed from Ushuaia on an 18m yacht, prepared for such a trip, late in December 22. By setting up camp sites, on the peninsula, as bases to explore from, the goal was to reach a few unclimbed peaks.
As we soon discovered Antarctica is a tough and remote location, where technical failures and the weather can have a big say in the outcome. Our adaptation to dealing with issues, often at unsociable hours, turned the expedition into a rather ‘exciting’ adventure.
