3Y0J BOUVET ISLAND 2023 DXPEDITION NEWS (Press Release; Canceled!).[edited]
To the global DX community.
We regret to inform you of the following news.
The global pandemic has impacted the expedition charter vessel business
very hard; this includes the venerable RV Braveheart which has provided
outstanding safety and service to many DXpeditions. As you know, we had
signed a contract with Braveheart for 3Y0J.
Today, we were informed that Braveheart will be sold. As a result, Nigel
Jolly will no longer be associated with the ship, our contract with the
ship has been cancelled and our deposit will be refunded. This is a very
disappointing development to all involved.
At this time, we are cancelling the 3Y0J Dxpedition. We have ceased
accepting donations and we will begin refunding 100% of the donations
using the same method they were received, i.e., PayPal, cash or check.
This process will take several weeks to sort out, so please be patient.
We wish to thank our team for putting their trust in us. We wish to
thank all of the donors and sponsors that gave generously to this
project. We will continue to research other ships and possibly find
another suitable vessel for a future project.
