After a first successful 6 month expedition around the Antarctic Peninsula, blakexpeditions' vessel Seamaster is now anchored at the Yacht Club Argentino in Buenos Aires, undergoing a complete refit for its forthcoming Amazonas expedition.
On Thursday, June 14th, 2001, the Yacht Club Argentino invited OMEGA's ambassador Sir Peter Blake to present the objectives of blakexpeditions, as well as feedback from the first expedition at its imposing Darsena Norte club house. As Blake is well known locally thanks to several Buenos Aires passages during previous round-the-world regattas, more than 400 people attended the presentation, crowding the usually calm Club House. Sir Peter repeatedly thanked OMEGA as the partner who made blakexpeditions possible. The Seamaster will be anchored in Buenos Aires until the end of August. Visits of the vessel can be organized, in conjunction with OMEGA's retailer Carlo Rossetti Gioielli, at Unicenter Mall.
