“A Taste of the Southern Ocean” Penguins, whales, dolphins, seals, albatross – the wildlife is as amazing as the weather is daunting. Visiting the Falklands, South Georgia, the Antarctic Peninsula and the southern tip of South America was the trip of a lifetime. Following in the footsteps of Shackleton, weathering three Force 11 storms, marvelling at glaciers and icebergs, we discovered why the world’s most remote cruising ground is such a magnet – and why not to go there by yacht!
