To carry out the “Unfinished Business” of Sir Ernest Shackleton and his men in 1914.
In honour of Sir Ernest’s incredible leadership, Team ITACE propose to retrace the steps taken 100 years previously to cross the Antarctic continent. We wish to celebrate the challenge of Antarctic exploration, the achievements, the innovations and the sacrifices – all to educate and inspire others in the same way that Shackleton inspires us.
The expedition will commence at the start of the Austral Summer, approximately Oct/Nov 2014. The purpose of the expedition is to make the crossing as Shackleton intended; he viewed it as the last great polar journey after Amundsen and Scott conquered the South Pole in 1911 and 1912.
- Recruit five men and women to join Jo Davies FRGS (Expedition Leader), this team will become known as the ‘Trans-Continental Party’.
- Form a support team based in the United Kingdom with the important task of assisting the trans-continental party prior to departure, and during the crossing of the continent. This team will become known as the ‘Home Support Team’
- Attempt a safe and successful crossing of the Antarctic continent from the Weddell Sea to the Ross Sea via the South Pole in 2014.
- To carry out scientific research which, may aid the endeavours of human kind in the future.
