Holly’s HB update #9

30 November 2016

Here are some ways to follow our voyage in Antarctica … our ship is called the “Ushuaia”, it sails under the Comoros flag, and its vessel numbers are IMO 6901907 and MMSI 616836006 . There are a few websites which track ships, such as vesselfinder.com (find the vessel’s name and select “track on map”) and an app i am using called Marine Traffic. This app shows our ship is currently near Yelcho Island on the Antarctic Peninsula. I met a Canadian couple in Punta Arenas a couple of weeks ago, and somehow we worked out that we are going to Antarctica on the same ship at different times! They are on the MV Ushuaia right now for a 7-day trip, returning to Ushuaia the morning of our departure!


Message from the organisers: With #3daystogo, all roads lead to Ushuaia! Sadly, we can’t all be on the #HomewardBound16 Antarctic voyage, but we can all be part of the journey. We’ll soon announce some more exciting ways for everyone to play a role in the movement. To never miss a moment, subscribe on our website for voyage updates, participant news and blogs, including today’s story from Fabian on what it’s like to turn a dream into a global movement. #staytuned #homewardbound #HBblog

You can now subscribe to updates about the voyage from the organisers. There is a link to subscribe on the home page of the   HB website.
