December Solstice 2015: What are you doing?
Victron people using Victron Energy products do extraordinary things, be that traversing deserts, rowing or sailing oceans – and on this solstice day that remains the case, but this time it is the start of climbing a mountain. This is no ordinary mountain.
Today, December 22 at 04:48 UT (that’s Universal Time not Coordinated Universal Time) is the winter solstice in the northern hemisphere. In the southern hemisphere you may well be on a beach celebrating the beginning of summer, but today in our half of the world it is the beginning of the astronomical winter – and for Victron installer Marek Klonowski (pictured above) that means the start of his fourth attempt at climbing Nanga Parbat.
