What you need to know

The South African Antarctic Club is open to membership to those expeditioners who have overwintered at one or more of South Africa’s research stations on the Antarctic continent, on the sub-Antarctic Marion Island or South Atlantic Gough Island. Anybody else who have also visited any of these stations, or have an active interest in these places, are also welcome to apply for Associate Membership. A nominal once off fee is applicable to both membership categories. The SAAC meets annually to hold its Annual General Meeting (AGM) and in celebration of Midwinter’s Day, if not on, as close as possible to 21 June.  A second get together, usually a braai, is sometimes also held during the summer.


Chair of the SA Antarctic Club for the 2019/2, Richard Skinner.
