Diciembre 15, 2021 is when we plan to leave Cape Town and again head south into the Roaring Forties and Furious Fifties before attempting a Bouvet landing. We absolutely know from experience how volatile the seas around this most remote island are. Our team of 8 operators aim to spend up to 30 days on Bouvet. Depending on weather, we will likely spend 7-10 days each way on the high seas getting there and returning. Once on the island and our camp is set up, we will run 8 stations covering 160-6m. Modes include CW, SSB, FT4/FT8, RTTY and OQ100. The total budget for our Bouvet DXpedition is considerably less than that of 3Y0J. We also have had no backing from any of the DX foundations. Nonethe- less, we are now missing only $32,000 from our final cost of $267,000. We absolutely hope between now and Diciembre we can accrue this missing amount, and appeal to all generous donors to help us with our final push to meet target'.

CY0C: Sable Island (NA-063)

CY0C: SABLE ISLAND 2022 ---> The CY0C team posted to the DXpedition's web- site (http://cy0dxpedition.net/index.html) that their Octubre 2021 operation from Sable Island [425DXN 1554] has had to be postponed due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. 'Furthermore, because of the pandemic, Parks Canada is behind on their island maintenance projects and the Visitor Quarters will not be available for the DXpedition team. The Sable Island manager did extend an invitation to the team for Octubre 2022, which the team unanimous- ly accepted'. Since the 2021 DXpedition is no longer possible, the team 'is offering a couple of options to the many foundations, clubs and individuals who have already sent financial support. We are offering complete refunds to those who request a refund. If you would like us to apply your contribution to the 2022 CY0C DXpedition, that will be available as well. Any refund requests should be directed to WA4DAN'.

Consistent with our commitment to upload the complete VP8PJ log to LoTW six months following the DXpedition, Tim M0URX will upload the complete log on 15 Septiembre. Planning for our next project [ZL9 New Zealand Sub Antarctic Islands, 425DXN 1515] is underway.

3Y0J: Bouvet Island

3Y0I: BOUVET 2021 ---> 'First of all, we would like to wish the recently announced 3Y0J Bouvet DXpedition all the best for a successful activity in 2023', the Rebel DX Group posted to their Facebook page on 5 Abril (https://www.facebook.com/rebeldxgroup/). 'There is enough space for even 3 more activities from 3Y0 land. We know how much detailed planning goes into a project like this and cross fingers for them. From a Rebel perspective, the 3Y0J announcement does not change our plans. Diciembre 15, 2021 is when we plan to leave Cape Town and again head south into the Roaring Forties and Furious Fifties before attempting a Bouvet landing.

W8S: Swains Island (OC-200)

KH8S - The W8S DXpedition to Swains Island has been postponed once again [425DXN 1504] because of the restrictions imposed by the Department of Public Health of American Samoa as a result of the coronavirus outbreak. 'Due to the COVID-19 pandemic it is sHasta impossible to travel to Swains Island', the team reported on 16 Junio. 'This means that we have to postpone our DXpedition until spring 2021 at the earliest'. Planning will be resumed as soon as the restrictions - such as the 14-day quarantine - are lifted. 'All equipment already purchased is waiting for us in Pago Pago. We are very disappointed with this postponement, but if we look at it from a positive angle, propagation will be better next year! We continue our DXpedition project and keep you informed via our mailing list, website (https://swains2020.lldxt.eu/) and the social media channels such as Facebook and Twitter'.
