Sir Ernst Expedition

It took 23 days at sea for Sir Ernst to cross from Mindelo on Cape Verde to Punta del Este in Uruguay. Everything had been organised for our arrival through to the PCR test done within two hours of berthing, under the watchful eye of a soldier from the armada. We were then greeted in remarkable fashion by the Yacht Club and its Commodore. For the moment, Sir Ernst is waiting for her crew within the sheltered calm of the port.


Departure for the Antarctic scheduled for 6th or 7th January.
