The Antarctic Climate Change in the 21st Century (AntClim21) is focused on understanding how the Antarctic Climate will change over the 21st century. There was a great opportunity for APECS members to mingle with the AntClim21 Steering Committee and other Antarctic climate experts on an evening cruise during the SCAR 2014 OSC on the Auckland Harbour on the Ocean Eagle. The Ocean Eagle (formally called ‘Chubasco’ & ‘American Eagle’) is a 72 foot Swath Ocean catamaran, designed and built in 1987 in the United States. She was originally built for the owner of a San Diego boat buil ding company ‘Swath Ocean Systems’ as his own personal pleasure vessel.
