Once you are settled in your cabin, we will regroup with a Welcome Reception and briefing on shipboard safe-ty. (breakfast and dinner included)

Day 6 - Monday, March 20 and Tuesday, March 21

These two days are spent at sea crossing the Beagle Channel and Drake Passage. The open bridge policy invites everyone to get a bird's eye view of the navigational activity alongside the Captain and his crew. Videos and lectures will introduce visitors to the wildlife, climate and history of Antarctica. We expect to arrive at King George Island late in the day when we drop off to race operations crew to set up the course for the following day. (breakfast, lunch and dinner included)

Day 7 - Wednesday, March 22 - Race Day!

The course has been prepared with flags and mileage markers. Hopefully, Mother Na-ture will be kind with the weather. The Wave 1 race will start at 7:00 AM and Wave 2 will start at 1:00 PM with both starts subject to change based on weather. Marathon-er’s should plan on a six (6) hour and thirty (30) minute time limit and Half-Marathoner’s will have a four (4) hour and thirty (30) minute cutoff (weather permit-ting). After this major accomplishment, enjoy a post-race party and celebration this evening! The ship heads south overnight toward the Antarctica Peninsula. (breakfast, lunch and dinner included)

Day 8 - Thursday, March 23

We awake to the panoramic views of glaciers mountains and pristine bays and chan-nels. Weaving among the icebergs, our destination is Paradise Bay, one of the most beautiful places on Earth. A sunny afternoon will permit us to have a barbecue and race awards ceremony on the stern deck. The zodiacs will bring us to shore for a visit to the vacated Argentine base nestled at the base of a hill where visitors are welcome to climb to the peak for a bird's eye view of the area. (breakfast, lunch and dinner included)

Friday, March 24 to Saturday, March 25
