Update from the Plancius

(first published on the Last Desert website on 3 November 2014)

Hallo everyone

It’s day 2 on the Plancius and the sea sickness is bad. Really struggling.

The sun is out, but the wind very strong and swells very big.

We are supposed to reach the first islands by midnight and thereafter things are supposed to be calmer. Let’s hope!

Otherwise everything is ok. We had a few more briefings – about the bird life, rules and procedures for Antarctica, etc.

Tomorrow is the big day – the start of the race. Hopefully I will feel much stronger and be ready for the challenge.

Thank you very much for all the blog comments and email messages. Really appreciate the support.

Until next time.
