Y avez-vous pensé? Cette expédition coûte environ 750 000$ US / 940 000$ cdn / 620 000 Euros

Puisque l'équipe se compose de 20 opérateurs, ça revient à ... Eh chacun!

La DXpédition est annulée. Le MV Betanzos se dirige maintenant vers Punta Arenas, Chili.  :AIM05

https://www.bouvetdx.org/news-and-updates/

February 3, 2018, 2000 UTC: During the last 72 hours, we continued to experience the high winds, low clouds, fog and rough seas that have prevented helicopter operations since our arrival at Bouvet. No improvement was predicted in the weather forecast for the next four days. Then, last night, an issue developed in one of the ship’s engines.

This morning, the captain of the vessel declared it unsafe to continue with our project and aborted the DXpedition. We are now on our long voyage back to Punta Arenas. As you might imagine, the team is deeply disappointed, but safe. There is already talk about rescheduling the DXpedition,

Avec un moteur en moins, ça va leur prendre plus de deux semaines pour revenir.

C'est le cas dire que c'est le voyage qui compte pas la destination.

February 8, 2018 update



February 8, 2018, 2045 UTC: 49.32 degrees South, 6.73 degrees East. 1,058 nautical miles from Capetown.

We are continuing our slow voyage to Capetown, currently making 6 knots, with one of our two engines out. The team is healthy, with plenty of food and water, and working to keep our spirits up. We cannot, however, escape the cloud of disappointment hovering over us and the DX community. We traveled 2700 nautical miles to Bouvet, but the last mile proved to be the most difficult.

As we type this, a tugboat is on its way to assist our vessel to the port of Capetown South Africa. We will continue to keep everyone informed, as this saga plays out. We would like to thank all of our friends and families who have been with us every mile of the way. Your good wishes, thoughts and prayers have sustained us over the last three weeks.

February 5, 2018, 0930 UTC: Our captain has decided that it is in the best interest of safety and expediency to proceed directly to Capetown, South Africa rather than Punta Arenas, Chile. We are now heading north to avoid the possibility of encountering ice. Currently, there is no ice in sight or on radar. In due time, we will head easterly toward Capetown.

Our entire team is safe. Most are resting in their bunks and in good spirits. We will keep the amateur radio community and our families informed, as we continue our journey.

Bob, K4UEE

Erling, LA6VM

1445 UTC: Position: 53 degrees 42 minutes South, 0.41 degrees West. Heading 58 degrees. Speed 7 knots. The wind is from 165 degrees and pushing us along in moderate following seas.

Our ride is now considerably smoother than earlier, today. We did pass through some ice between 1200 and 1300 UTC. The sea is clear now.

We are headed for Capetown, South Africa rather than Punta Arenas, Chile.This is the safest and most expedient course for us.

We thank those who have expressed concern and good wishes. We are, of course, very, very disappointed. We are slowed, but safe.

Ralph, KØIR

February 16, 2018, 1320 UTC: ETA at Capetown harbor is 0930 on Saturday morning. We understand that immigration and customs will come aboard at 1700, and we will likely be cleared to depart the vessel. DAP has us all booked into a local hotel near the waterfront.

On Sunday, there will be a reception held at a local yacht club sponsored by a local radio club and numerous DXers. We are very much looking forward to that and are certainly honored.

The first of the team will begin departing for home on Sunday night, and the majority will be on their way Monday evening/early Tuesday morning. A few more will straggle out and be on their way home on Wednesday.

When we depart the vessel on Saturday, that will be our 31st day aboard the ship. Needless to say, we are ready to set foot on dry, un-moving ground once again. Ralph and I are very proud of this team. They have endured many hardships since departing home in early January. They have been patient and resilient and good company. There will be more updates in the future, as we begin to unravel this attempt and plan our subsequent strategy.

73,
Bob, K4UEE

February 17, 2018, 1450 UTC:
Awesomeness is being greeted by a 37-foot ketch in Cape Town Harbor and its crew of ZS ham friends.
We are grateful for their assistance in getting us into the dock and processed by the SA customs and immigration folks.
1530 UTC: We are now docked, and we have been processed by customs and immigration.
