Antarctic Shipping News

I was glad to hear that the RRS Ernest Shackleton has reached Halley at last.

They didn’t make it last year, due to exceptionally heavy sea ice near Halley. This meant that the usual supplies of fuel couldn’t be delivered to the base and they were on their emergency year’s supply. If the Shack hadn’t got there this year the base was going to have to be shut down.

Even though it’s now years since I left the place I still have friends working there this summer, and a certain emotional attachment to it as well.

Scary stuff
