Greetings from Ushuaia
The expedition ship, Plancius, our home for the Last Desert Race, departs from Ushuaia on Saturday afternoon (1 November 2014) to start the crossing of the Drake Passage to the Antarctic Peninsula.
The sixth edition of the Last Desert Race – 250km over 5 days – will be held from 4-8 November 2014 at various locations in Antarctica.
A total of 69 competitors representing 27 countries will participate in the race.
Communication and updates from the race are weather depending, but the following links will keep you informed about my progress:

The countdown to Antarctica continues…
I’m excited about the race in Antarctica and the challenge of raising R250 000 for a Greenpeace Africa solar street lighting project in Diepsloot, and encourage you to support my efforts and the work of Greenpeace Africa!
