Sail with Charcot
See what life was like on the polar pioneer’s ship in Sandgerði Jean-Baptiste Charcot was born in 1867.He took an old soapbox when he was 3 years old, scrawled “Pourquoi Pas?” on its side and set sail—in the garden pool! It sank, leaving him wet but undaunted! French society was too superficial for him. In 1892, aged 25, he bought his first ship and sailed north to the Shetlands, Hebrides, Faroes and Iceland. His father died the following year, leaving him a large inheritance, allowing him to leave medicine behind for a life of scientific investigation and sea-faring adventure. On his first trip to the Antactic, he charted more than 600 miles of new Antarctic coastline and islands. Another, equally successful expedition followed. Scott of the Antarctic nicknamed him, ‘The Gentleman of the Pole’. After the 1st World War, he led expeditions to the Færoe Islands, Jan Mayen Island, Iceland and Greenland. The ‘Pourquoi Pas?’ was a scientific research vessel with a library and three laboratories on board.
