SPEAKER: Frank Rainer – Bouvet Bound
In 2015 Frank and a few other TCC members embarked on an expedition trip to
Antarctica to attempt a visit to the elusive Norwegian island of Bouvet (remotest
uninhabited land mass in the world). The five-week cruise took them from Ushuaia,
Argentina, to the South Shetland, South Orkney, and South Sandwich Islands. From
Tristan da Cunha they island-hopped up along the western coast of Africa to St.
Helena and Ascension with a final stop in the Cape Verde Islands. The slideshow
will describe their adventures and misadventures on that trip.
