Thank you to all who were able to attend the 2041 Reunion held in London this past week. It was so wonderful to hear so many achievements amongst the group. One thing that is often realized but easily forgotten is that we are not just an unique group of people who have had the opportunity to see Antarctica in person, we are a special family who not only talk about doing something in this world, but actually delivery positive change.
We are so proud to see TEAM AQUA take the lead for the 3rd year in a row. Owner, Chris Bake has been a loyal supporter of 2041 since the beginning. Watch the team as they take on this season of RC44 racing and show some support!

Robert Swan recently met up with two alumni members at the BP NEXT event in London. Andrea Abraham, Global Director of BP Target Neutral joined 2041 in Antarctica on IAE 5 in 2007 (pictured) and Joe Little came on the BP Expedition in 2009.
The time has come after years of planning and intense training for British adventurers Ben Saunders and Tarka L’Herpiniere. Departing England, they are now in the icy cold of the Antarctic to sort final checks to complete Scott’s 1,800-mile return journey to the South Pole on foot. All of us at 2041 are eagerly waiting their departure and most importantly, their safe return.
Be sure to follow their journey and their great use of technology while on this mission on their website The Scott Expedition.
This last Sunday, three of the Global Himalayan Expedition Members ran the Shimal Marathon to raise funds to keep e-base Ladakh running and in great shape, which also includes internet access for three years. Their goal was to raise $2000 and to date they have nearly doubled that. Way to go team and well done on running the marathon Sonal, Jaideep and Inderpreet.
