Add nothing to the risks

“A boat party might make the voyage and be back with relief within a month, provided that the sea was clear of ice and the boat survive the great seas. […] The hazards of a boat journey across 800 miles of stormy ocean were obvious, but I calculated that at worst the venture would add nothing to the risks of the men left on the island.”

— Ernest Shackleton, South
