The Rag Club, Pall Mall, London - 14th July 2016



We would like to invite you to an immensely exciting event that we have planned specifically to meet an extraordinary polar explorer, Seb Coulthard FRGS.

On the centenary of the 1914-17 Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition by Sir Ernest Shackleton, an expert team of six explorers including Seb Coulthard set sail in 2013 to recreate the iconic rescue mission embarked upon by Shackleton to Elephant Island and South Georgia when their ship, the Endurance, became fatally trapped in the pack ice. Seb and his colleagues were determined to use only the same equipment, vessel (they built a replica vessel named the "Alexandra Shackleton"), navigational aids and even clothing that Shackleton and his crew would have used. This journey became its own feat of endurance and was known as the ‘Shackleton Epic Expedition’.

This will be a wonderful chance to meet Seb and hear first-hand about his own experiences and insight into just what Shackleton and his men must have endured to get home to safety. Seb will share some of his most memorable challenges and experiences not just of this particular journey but of the wonders of Antarctica and the Southern Isles.

There is a small charge of £15 per head payable at time of booking, the proceeds of which will be donated to our charitable project, the Friends of Scott Polar Research Institute.

The evening will offer you the opportunity to learn more about this epic tale of triumph over adversity. You can also join Seb onboard one of two Shackleton Centenary Voyages that he will be joining this coming season on the beautiful Hebridean Sky heading to the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and the Antarctic Peninsula.

This is a truly unique travel opportunity that has just become available to us and particularly perfect if you have been thinking of a holiday to Antarctica. This is a stunning opportunity not to be missed to voyage to the White Continent and travel in Shackleton’s footsteps this coming season. You can also take advantage of our additional service in Buenos Aires negotiated exclusively for our valued clients pre or post voyage.

We very much hope that you will be able to join us and do please bring along or share this invitation amongst friends who might be interested.

Tickets can be ordered by calling us or simply using the booking form at the bottom of this page.
