VillaGaiety wishes good luck to Sir Ranulph Fiennes OBE who, along with five colleagues, today embarks on his next great adventure – The Coldest Journey on Earth.
On 6 December 2012, on board the expedition’s South African ice-strengthened research ship, ‘SA Agulhas’, the expedition team – led by Sir Ranulph – will leave London, bound for Antarctica. Their aim is to complete ‘The Coldest Journey’ – the first-ever trans-Antarctic winter expedition. The Coldest Journey will also attempt to raise USD10 million for ‘Seeing is Believing’, a global charitable initiative to fight avoidable blindness. During their sea voyage, the team will undertake a number of scientific tasks to provide unique data on marine life, oceanography and meteorology. Using the very latest technological innovations, this epoch-making journey will pave the way for a new dawn in Antarctic, year-round exploration.
Upon his return in 2014, he will be recounting his epic adventure. One of the first dates on his tour will be a return to the Isle of Man on 26 June 2014, courtesy of Isle of Man Sporting and Dining Club. Following his sellout show at the Gaiety and coinciding with the launch of his latest expedition, tickets for Sir Ranulph’s return have been put on sale today.
