Physical and technical level:
The Drake Passage is considered by all sailing sailors as a point to have great respect. It is a compromise navigation where there are high possibilities of hard time. The trip is made with a sailboat and crew completely appropriate to the navigation plan. We will carry out part of our sailing and all members of the group will be able to learn all the techniques and maneuvers on board.
The descents to land will be coordinated by our polar guide in the places of greatest interest and where moderate level walking excursions will be made.
Antarctica is a place subject to different international standards to leave the minimum impact on its ecosystem. On land, all instructions from the expedition leader must be followed.
On the boat, all management falls to the Skipper of the boat who will take all measures for safe navigation. The safety material for sailing will be delivered upon arrival and in the same way a briefing will be carried out to guarantee maximum safety throughout the trip.
A list of materials will be provided to participants.
Accommodation and Food:
The sailboat is fully equipped with heating to be comfortable inside both when eating and sleeping. The sailboat has capacity for 12 passengers and 4 crew members, has 9 cabins and a very large deck. Meals will be eaten on board by all members of the group.
Environment and sustainability
Sailing is an environmentally friendly activity. We try to navigate as much as we can and use the engine as little as possible.
