Sail-World.com : Andhoey escapes New Zealand Customs, heads for Antarctica

Andhoey escapes New Zealand Customs, heads for Antarctica

Norwegian sailor Jarle Andhoey has escaped out of New Zealand waters and is headed to Antarctica. Customs officials found the yacht skippered by the sailor illegally making his way to Antarctica, but his yacht, Nilaya, was already in international waters at the time of the sighting.

A spokesman said a plane last night circled the Nilaya and made numerous attempts to hail it but there was no response, and no further sightings since.

Jarle Andhoey world made headlines with his companion, Samuel Massie, last February when they attempted to cross the South Pole on quadbikes.

A support yacht, Berserk, was waiting for them in McMurdo Sound but it sank and all three men aboard died. See Sail-World story?nid=93300 from earlier this week.

Mr Andhoey, 35, and Mr Massie, 19, broke off their Pole attempt when they heard of the loss of the Berserk but later faced severe criticism for attempting the journey.

On Wednesday, New Zealand authorities said they were looking for Mr Andhoey. Norwegian authorities had not authorised last year's voyage, or this one, as required by that country's law.

His friend Stig Hatlo today told Radio New Zealand this morning he had spoken to Mr Anhoy's family overnight (NZT) and his mother said everything was fine on the yacht.

Mr Hatlo did not know Mr Andhoy's exact position and said his friend did not think he was breaking any laws.

'I'm not in a position to tell him that you should not do this, or you should do that, he is very strong guy and it's impossible to tell him what to do or what not to do.'

It takes about 12 to 14 days to sail from New Zealand to Antarctica.
