High latitude adventures, Steve Brown

Recounting the latest in a series of adventures that began with an east-west transit of the North West Passage in 2014, in this talk Steve Brown will cover two sailing and ski mountaineering expeditions to South Georgia and Antarctica in the southern spring and summer of 2017-18.

In addition to the amazing wildlife, spectacular scenery, exploration and whaling history, Steve and the team on board his 60ft Aero rigged schooner Novara encounter storms, blizzards, and dense sea ice; recover from a potentially catastrophic grounding and the possibility of running out of jam! Using slides and video footage, Steve will try to give an impression of what sailing in these magical cruising grounds is really like.
