Kerguelen Islands Call

“We were happy to arrive safely at Kergelen Island,” says Mike. “The last few days of sailing were extremely rough. We now have first hand experience of the 'Screaming 50’s', as we experienced our first force 12 storm, rolling breakers and gales of 56 knots! It was quite something but Pangaea and her team coped very well.”

“The scientists and researchers staying at Kergeulen gave us a warm welcome and have been extremely helpful. Pangaea had a few minor problems caused by the storm but they helped us make the necessary repairs of which we are very grateful.”

“After a good sleep we will head off again and are expecting another rough trip through to New Zealand. With strong southeasterlies pushing us through we expect to arrive in about 15 days.”
