Bosham Forum – In the Steps of Shackleton Talk

Bosham Forum – 26TH FEBRUARY 7.30pm – Function room of Bosham Hall. Anyone is welcome to come along, either as a guest or become a member. The talk is entitled “In the Steps of Shackleton” and the speaker is Martin Thomas.

Martin Thomas and seven friends chartered a yacht to retrace Shackleton’s legendary journey to South Georgia in 1916. To recreate those extraordinary events ‘Pelagic Australis’ a 72ft, aluminium sloop purpose-built for high altitude sailing was chartered. The crew joined her in the Falkland Islands and took 5 freezing days to reach South Georgia.
