Meanwhile, Parker Liataud, a 19-year old geology student, broke the 22-day speed record for the journey to the South Pole along with his expedition partner, Doug Stoop. The pair completed the journey on Christmas Eve in 18 days, four hours and 43 minutes.

 

Hearty congratulations to all concerned.

    1. Well chosen, Matthew! Congratulations to Parker! And good luck to the Atlantic polo Team who braved 50 ft waves, sharks five meters from their tiny boat and have overcome seasickness, blistered hands and chafed bottoms, not to mention permanent sleep deprivation. D.L.
