Bark Europa in Antarctica - Centennial Expedition 2011
By Debbie Purser, Classic Sailing
Three masted tall ship Europa explores Antarctica and the Southern Ocean under sail from December to March every year. Anyone with a reasonable level of fitness can sign on as voyage crew for 22 day, 34 day or 52 day Expeditions (see www.classic-sailing.co.uk). This book follows the adventures of tall ships enthusiast Debbie Purser on a special 34 day epic to celebrate Bark Europa's 100th birthday. The ship sailed from Montevideo to the Falklands then downwind to anchorages in mountainous South Georgia, remote South Orkney, Antarctica and Tierra del Fuego.
