Gayle Force and her amazing Antarctic journey


Gayle Force and her amazing Antarctic journey

11 Mar 2020
The Deck

In November 2018, Captain Scott took the helm of Gayle Force, a 96-foot expedition yacht, for a year-long journey of 25,000 nautical miles. The owners had purchased the yacht with the intention of modernizing her power and technology systems while honouring her classic beauty. So, the Gayle Force journey actually began long before heading out to sea, as Scott also managed her comprehensive 18-months-long refit project.

Scott will share some sights and stories from their adventures, including time in Antarctica, as well as some lessons learned from a team of radically different professionals intent on achieving the same challenging goal.
