I now on board Dodo's Delight, a 33 foot sailing boat, part way through completing a lifelong ambition to sail across the infamous North West passage West to East through the ice-laden Arctic Ocean.
Please check out my blog for my latest news.
More people have been to the moon than navigated these waters. It will be a record breaking feat when we complete the journey.
The Arctic seabed has had little research. This expedition will include surveying and videoing the seabed, especially around glacier outfalls, to determine the effect of the ice on the seabed and investigate what marine plants and sea life exist.
The expedition is a team of five people, and is entirely self reliant and self-funding, and I'm very grateful for the support of my sponsors.
I'm also extremely proud to be raising funds for the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust which takes young people aged between 8-24 sailing to help them regain their confidence, on their way to recovery from cancer, leukaemia and other serious illness.
I will be updating my blog frequently on my adventures (sat phone connectivity dependent), so please do check in regularly.
I appreciate all your support and if you'd like to make a donation in aid of the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust, then you can do so here:
Proud to support
With thanks to...
