ALSA has been privileged to spend some time with the 64th Gough Island Overwintering Team during team training.
Having met the team, we feel some connection with these guys that will be contributing to South Africa’s Antarctic Legacy.
Today is one of the Meteorologists on the team’s birthday and we would like to wish him all the best for the coming year.
The team will depart on their 14 month expedition this Thursday, 06 September 2018.

We would like to thank DEA (Department of Environmental Affairs) for including ALSA in Team Training. We are looking forward to SANAE58 Team Training that will commence in October 2018.
