Antarctic Peninsula 10-23 March 2009

On board M/V Grigoriy Mikheev

During this spe­cial voya­ge, we fol­lo­wed in the wake of the French explo­rer Jean-Bap­tis­te Char­cot who was the first one to explo­re and chart many hund­red miles of until then unknown coast­li­ne, exact­ly 100 years ago, on board his ship Por­quois Pas?. This was his second voya­ge, fol­lowing a few years after his first one on board the Fran­cais. Next to map­ping pre­vious­ly unknown are­as and two suc­cess­ful win­te­rings in Ant­arc­ti­ca, he mana­ged to bring ever­y­bo­dy back ali­ve from both his Ant­arc­tic expe­di­ti­ons – qui­te unusu­al in tho­se days – des­pi­te having serious­ly dama­ged both of his ship on the very same rock!
