After sailing around the southern tip of South Georgia and up the coast, we arrived at King Edward Point just after breakfast. The last few hours were in calm waters but thick fog so the water tight doors were closed. But what an arrival. At the entrance to the bay the fog lifted to reveal […]

That was a watch for the memory bank! We’ve just finished the 1230-1600 watch. Winds over the port bow 35-45 knots – force 9 in Beaufort speak – with occasional gusts over 50 knots (force10).  We are muffled in many layers of  most of  our clothing and those who had the foresight to bring ski […]

Today we entered the Antarctic Convergence Zone, this also means we are now on the same chart as South Georgia – our first destination on this voyage.  Sea birds are spotted in abundance, albatross, tern and petrel. You can still see Dolphins jumping out of the water and spinning, despite being in the coldest seas […]

We’re still heading towards the Azores, 620 nm travelled so far. The weather has been great; good sunbathing opportunities and the wind is picking up. The day started with Lauras fitness class on the back of the bridge, a good work out ahead of tomorrow’s yoga class. After the morning meeting, the Mate Trev gave us a very formative […]

Another glorious sunny morning on board. After a hearty breakfast we were all set for the days tasks. Once Permanent crew and Watch Leaders were briefed, we had happy hour but not as we know it back home; this one involves cleaning our beloved ship for all to enjoy. Rachel and Mags climbed to the top of […]

As it’s Mothering Sunday, we all thought of our mothers and hoped that our children were thinking of us mums too. The Captain kindly gave us a lazy day, being a Sunday. We had swells of 8 metres which provided the ship with a smooth ride, giving us time to enjoy the sun on deck. It was […]

The day began approximately 40 miles North of Tenerife heading South West. The descelleration of the polar vortex has left us with rather a bouncy ocean, but still a majestic sight. This is our second day out at sea but today with no land in sight. A new sensation for me. A highlight today was a […]

Over 8,000 miles away at the Jubilee Sailing Trust’s HQ, our office team have been enjoying reading the ship’s blogs and newspapers over the last 6 weeks – we hope you have too! Fortunately the crew have sent […]

Part 1 from the Chris Hart Blog The crossing from the Cape Verde’s to the Azores has proved to be somewhat of a challenge. We set off in fine weather from the barren sandy port Palmeria, but unfortunately the weather had changed over the next few days. The sudden taste of salt filling my mouth […]

Hello and goodbye La Palma! We came on watch at 4 AM, the winds did relent a little they were still very brisk. We were on the final approach to La Palma, a very interesting island with the volcano that if it erupts, the whole side of a huge mountain some 500 cubic km collapses […]
