"QUEST 100" Friday 24 September 2021

On Friday, 24 September 2021 Devon & Cornwall Polar Society are planning a one day event in Plymouth to commemorate the centenary of the sailing of "Quest" from Millbay Dock at the start of the "Shackleton - Rowett Expedition".

Inevitably, the day will be dependent upon the Covid restrictions in force at the time, which at present are impossible to forecast.

There will be a selection of talks, films and displays and lunch taking up the full day.

Speakers already engaged are:

The event will take place at the historic Duke of Cornwall Hotel, MIllbay, Plymouth where Shackleton stayed before sailing out of Plymouth Sound. A discounted accommodation package will be available for those wanting to stay overnight.

Please keep in touch with updates on the website www.devonandcornwallpolarsociety.org.uk/futureevents

Once the arrangements have been re-confirmed we will circulate full details and a booking form.
