 ANTARCTIC ADVENTURE THE ICE MAN OF IRON BARK

James Baldwin tells us about the Antartic adventure of Trevor Robertson. Anchoring in the Antarctic is difficult because the bottom is generally bare rock that's had its sediment scoured away by the ice," Trevor said. "The technique I used was to find the smallest available cove, drop the anchor, then quickly get into the dinghy and set four lines up ashore before the anchor drags. If you're in shallow enough water, the big bergs ground themselves before smashing into you."
