Navarino is pleased to announce sponsorship of an exciting expedition to the Antarctic. The 25 metre sailing boat ‘Vaihere’ and its crew of 10 will set sail from Ushaia to the Antarctic Peninsula on January 11 on a month long trek which will return in early February.
Navarino will be providing an Infinity unit, in conjunction with Inmarsat who will be sponsoring airtime, and Cobham who will supply FleetBroadband equipment. The very southerly route will allow the crew to test FleetBroadband in one of the world’s most harsh environments, right on the edge of the Inmarsat coverage map. Besides the difficult conditions, it is expected that many kinds of wildlife will be encountered, so we shall look forward to receiving the pictures and videos sent through the FleetBroadband.
We wish the adventurers the best of luck and will keep you updated on how the trip went in our next Newsletter.
