Hayley Shephard is trying to solo kayak around South Georgia. Here's some recently recorded unedited news shots of her in Alert Bay. She is required by British law to have a support vessel, but she insists it is not there for support. It is there for search and rescue if she fails.
It looks like she will be in touch with the outside world. She is posting Audio updates on her blog and there's a documentary film-maker with her so we can follow her progress which starts on 22nd January.
Hayley calls her expedition Kayaking To Save The Albatross. Her website says it's believed longline fishing is the main culprit, with hundreds of thousands of seabirds caught on baited hooks.
