In 1973, Lars-Eric Lindblad offered a trip on his ship, the Lindblad Explorer, to the Antarctic, a place no company had ever taken tourists before this time. Chatham resident Fran Drew decided she and her sister should embark on this journey together scheduled February 16 to March 7, 1973.  Fran and her sister Rosanne were among 60 tourists from eleven countries who traveled as far south as possible, crossing the “roaring forties”, the roughest passage in the world where three oceans meet and waves are 40 feet high.  It took two days to get across from the tip of South America to the Antarctic Peninsula to view a landscape only previously seen by seasoned explorers and researchers.  Please join us as Fran relates her undaunted travel experience on Monday, March 25 at 7 pm.
