Small Boat to Coronation
Base H - Signy Island Antarctica

©Copyright - Crown, expired

The very thought of doing this today would probably result in someone in Cambridge popping a blood vessel. As it was we enjoyed the adventure and then worried about what might have happened in bed at night (well I did anyway - maybe I was just a wuss).

In 2007 Coronation is considered to be out of the range of Signy boats and so a trip there is no longer possible, the hut at Shingle cove with its supplies has been removed for some official reason, but probably mainly just in case someone gives it a go.

I don't know what boats Signy currently has, but I bet they are a lot more sea-worthy than this underpowered, leaky dinghy that people would take over occasionally on a calm day.

This picture is one of a collection assembled in 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.
