BFF show for HMS Protector

May 28, 2016

The BFF travelled to South Africa  to entertain the crew of HMS Protector – the Royal Navy’s ice breaker.

The Charity employed the talents of South Africa’s top comedians for the special event in Cape Town along with BFF stalwart Kev Orkian.

The show proved a huge hit. Lieutenant Commander RN Becca Burghall said: “Thank you for organising last night’s event for us, everyone has said they had a very good time. 

Two months earlier HMS Protector has arrived in Punta Arenas – marking a full circumnavigation of the globe since October. Since leaving the UK, the ice patrol vessel had sailed more than 18,500 nautical miles of which 3,000 were across the Southern Ocean.

Close to the ice edge, the bridge team encountered huge icebergs, some measuring more than half a nautical mile in diameter. 

HMS Protector sailed solo and was at times more than 1,000nm away from any other ship or human settlement in Antarctica and over 2,000nm from both South America and New Zealand.
