Life on board the Hanse Explorer

Sur 02, mar 2012 | Un commentaire | Catégorie: Carnet de Voyage, Journal de Bord, Navire, Vidéo | Auteur: Jason Rodi

We lost our internet and satellite connection last week. It was a good week on board the Hanse Explorer, permitting us to find our new groove now that we were all by our lonesome. Here, Will Allen graces us with a lovely blues rift.

Last Broadcast Before Bouvet

We are arriving at Bouvet Island, the most remote land on Earth. The weather is perfect for our landing and hopefully we’ll find a route up to the summit. When I wake up in the morning, we’ll print the last of the visions of the future and will seal the time capsule I plan to leave at the summit. This is my last broadcast until I return. I carry with me your aspirations for the greatest of tomorrows. Dream, my friends, really dream!
This is an expedition for humanity; my family and loved ones, my dear wife Corinne, my beautiful daughter, Jane, and most of all Alix, yet to be born. May her future be filled with opportunity.
As high as the mountains, and deep as the sea, I love you all,
.j.

Chatting with Chief Officer Heidi Norling of Sweden, and Navigation Officer Alan Gross from Argentina about the journey ahead, from Cape Horn, across the sub-antarctic seas, to the most remote Island on Earth, Bouvet, and finally Cape of Good Hope. This unique adventure is clearly a dream of these sailors.

That’s it, at last, the Hanse Explorer is leaving from Ushuaia today, February 8th. Meeting the crew and settling into my cabin. After 3 months of preparation it’s all become real now, we are on our way toward the future!

Will has an inReach satellite tracking system that lets you see our exact location. We’re using it ourselves to see where we’re at and we think it’s so cool that we just have to let you in on it.

Arriving in Ushuaia, the end of the world. This was my last day on the continent, and where I first see our ship, the Hanse Explorer.

Captain Peter Schuster on the Hanseatic League

Sur 01, jan 2012 | Aucun Commentaire | Catégorie: Carnet de Voyage, Navire, Vidéo | Auteur: Jason Rodi


Since I put The Expedition for the Future online I’ve received interesting information on the journey that I didn’t yet know about. Peter Schuster, for example, is a boat captain from Germany, living in Montreal. The name of the boat we are taking is the Hanse Explorer, and Peter took notice of this because he has a book about the Hanseatic League, an alliance of trading cities and merchant guilds that dominated trade along the coast of Northern Europe in the 13th through the 17th centuries. An alliance in the late middle ages that lasted 400 years. What principles might have kept it together for so long?
