the Wind Doesn't Get Up
©Copyright P. Ward - picture taken 1985 / 86
Designed to send anyone who works in H&S into a state of apoplexy (bit dangerous that - best look the opposite way), probably quite rightly too in this case. I can't remember what these people were doing in this boat in the fairly close pack but it made for nice photographs from where I was on shore up a small hill.
Had even quite a light wind got up (and Signy doesn't really do even "light wind" very often, it is usually more than that) in the wrong direction, the boat and crew could have found themselves trapped in the middle of many thousands of tons of ice slowly floating off in the opposite direction with no way of making progress through it. Don't try this at home.

2007 on the 60th anniversary of Signy Island Base: 60°43'S 045°36'W.
Thank you to those who sent their treasured memories of their time in
Antarctica and allowed them to be made into a commemorative cd and then
placed here on the web.
The reunion weekend was
14-16 September 2007.
