Louise was christened during a reception at Claasen, and underwent extensive sea trials

before taking off for her maiden voyage to Rio de Janeiro in October last year, after which

she went on to the Falklands and then Antarctica via South Georgia in late January. On 6

February, she left Port Lockroy in the British Antarctic Territory and crossed through the

tricky Drake Passage to South America, reaching Cape Horn on 9 February. Louise

thoroughly proved her mettle in the challenging conditions, celebrated with the traditional

topping of a champagne bottle and toast to Neptune.

 Arriving in Ushuaia in Argentina, a frontier destination at the bottom of the world, the crew of

Louise encountered sailors from as far afield as Beijing and Cape Town, all stopping to refuel

and replenish stocks. Departing again on 3 March, Louise spent the next few weeks exploring

the Patagonian channels     Claasen Shipyards
