And they’re off! On Sunday 19th June Northabout embarked on her polar expedition. Just after 4pm, the yacht left a rainy Bristol to whoops and cheers from friends, family, journalists, politicians and other well-wishers who had gathered by the SS Great Britain dock to wave off David, Ben and the rest of the crew.

Heading out through the Bristol Channel they will make their way up the West coast of the UK, around the coast of Norway and into the cold icy waters of the northern Siberian coast. Here they will face their first challenge – the notorious Northeast passage – following it to their first stop in Murmansk, Russia.

Will they make it?

Find out more about this ‘last great challenge’ and what it has to do with climate change…

Question of the Month

What will you eat on the trip?

 

We are planning to take a lot of pre-packed (tinned or dried) food as it is easily stored. We will eat fresh food at the beginning of the trip, up to Murmansk, and re-provision with fresh food at each port. We are hoping to take a bread maker but this can only be used in good weather. During the training trip to Svalbard we even managed a bake-off!

Summer competition!

 

Over the summer we are running a competition for young people.

Let your imagination run wild!

Tell us where YOU would explore, the top 10 things you would take on your expedition and why.
