If anyone can spare a few minutes to watch a video and vote for us, all of us involved in Adventure2013 would be very grateful.
You have to go to http://www.facebook.com/kukrievents/app_280137398742997 like the page and then vote for our video (Adventure2013 – the one with waves on). We’re hoping to raise up to £20,000 in sponsorship to help with the costs of the trip. The video includes some footage from our September trip to Stornoway on the boat and a tour inside her. I’m afraid that it doesn’t work from a phone and so you will have to use a computer.
If anyone’s not on Facebook then you can watch the video directly on YouTube (but please vote for us on Facebook if you can).
We have put together a fairly comprehensive kit list for the Antarctic and South Georgia legs. It is based upon the kit list used by several of the Army Antarctic sailing expeditions, updated with our personal experiences. Many thanks to Richard Pattison for providing us with the original Army list. Please get in touch if you have any questions or comments about the kit list.
