A Talk by Skip Novak

Based in South Africa, Skip Novak is a seasoned yacht-racer who has competed in
four Round the World Yacht Races, first visiting Cape Town in the 1977/78 Whitbread. He is also a keen mountaineer and an author of two books. In 1987 Skip constructed the fifty four foot expedition boat, the Pelagic, and combined his mountaineering passions with his sailing skills by heading for southern South America, Antarctica and Southern Georgia for mountaineering expeditions. In 2003 he launched the 74 foot Pelagic Australis, built in Durban, which is currently berthed at the V and A Waterfront Marina for her annual refit.  Both Pelagic and Pelagic Australis operate in the South from October to June specializing in adventure tourism but also for providing logistic support for film teams and science projects.
