Evening Meeting: Around Antarctica in 88 days by Prof Peter Ryan.
Oct 10 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Meet at 20h00 at the Nassau Centre, Groote Schuur High School, Palmyra Road, Newlands.
In 2016/17 Peter Ryan was fortunate to be able to join the Antarctic Circumnavigation Expedition
(ACE), a privately-funded research cruise from Cape Town to Cape Town via Hobart and Punta Arenas.
In addition to visiting the continent itself, the cruise called at a mouth-watering array of islands en
route, including all the sub-Antarctic islands in the Indian Ocean, the Balleny Islands, Peter I Island,
Scot Island, Diego Ramirez, South Georgia, the South Sandwich Islands, and Bouvet. Peter will share
the highs and lows of living on a Russian ice-breaker for three months.
Visitors and non – members, are very welcome, tea and biscuits are served afterwards.
