The RCC Pilotage Foundation is grateful to Andy O'Grady and Ulla Norlander for allowing us to publish their notes, arising from their cruise to South Georgia, for the information and benefit of others. These notes supplement and update Pete and Annie Hill's earlier work which is also available from RCCPF. Any skipper tempted to cruise these waters should note their advice and cautions and only attempt the voyage in a well found vessel with a strong crew. They must be totally self contained and physically and mentally strong enough to cope with the fast changing conditions and the harsh environment. The rewards may be immense but the challenges are great
Whilst the RCC Pilotage Foundation, contributors, and authors have used reasonable endeavours to ensure the accuracy of the contents of this
website, the information on this website should not be relied on alone for navigational use, and should only be used in conjunction with official hydrographic data. This is particularly relevant to plans and maps, which should not be used for navigation.
