The mysterious, protected by the UN and closed off from the world. The stuff of urban legends! What is the truth here?
Yes, we do have a few trips that visit the Ross Sea and travel as far South as 77 or 78 degrees. I list them below. However please note that it it unlikely you would have a complete 24 hour period in one spot to take time lapse.
The Antarctic Treaty was signed in Washington on 1 December 1959.
” sailing around the S 56° latitude would not require permission from the “Antarctic Treaty” because there will not be a need to cross below the S60° Latitude into the “Southern Ocean”. No vessel can enter waters below the S60° without permission.
So, an expedition like this should not need to deal w/jumping through the many Antarctic Treaty “hoops” – as the vessel would not be going anywhere near making an approach towards “Antarctica”.” http://rickpotvinflatearth.blogspot.com/2017/09/chippy-propsed-33-deg-circumnav-in.html#comment-form
