Stephen Venables, Simon Richardson, Skip Novak, Crag Jones, Henry Chaplin and David Lund are currently returning home from a highly successful expedition to the Sub-Antarctic island of South Georgia.
The team climbed eight mountains including two of the greatest prizes on the island - first ascents of the spectacular Starbuck Peak (1434m) and the remote and difficult Mount Baume (1912m), one of the highest unclimbed summits.
> Yeah, if I had shed loads of money, I'd definitely look at doing a trip with them. And if I had even more money I'd probably commission a custom made aluminium hull expedition yacht
I had the pleasure of a tour round Pelagic Australis a few years back in Ushuaia, it is rather a beast, the skipper of the original Pelagic wasn't so keen on having us on board though. You don't need a custom build, a Boreal 44, or one of their larger yachts, will get you a long way. Personally I'm very keen on a custom Bestevaer... lapses into daydream mode...
