THE NEXT ADVENTURE
The 2016 Gino Watkins Greenland Expedition went really well. An awesome experience, we reached our objective without major incident and paddled through some stunning Greenland landscapes to reach the British Arctic Air Route Expedition (BAARE) base.
In February of 2017, I fly to Ushuaia in Argentina to board the yacht Icebird and sail to the Antarctic Peninsula with a group of 6 other paddlers and the two crew to explore the Peninsula by kayak and yacht and retrace as much as we can the routes and explorations of John Rymill and his men in 1934-1937 during the British Graham Land Expedition (BGLE) . This will likely be a challenging trip, but at the same time extremely rewarding.
Rymill took over Gino Watkins expedition in East Greenland after Watkin’s unfortunate death so there is a close connection between our expedition to Lake Fjord in East Greenland and Graham Land in Antarctica.
We reached Lake Fjord on 2nd August, 2016. This was only the 4th kayak expedition to reach this point in the last 84 years! A brilliant trip with many memorable moments.
I am a wilderness and landscape photographer based in Tasmania, Australia.
Tasmania has some of the finest untouched wilderness landscapes on Earth.
I invite you to enter and see Tasmania and other places on this wonderful planet from my perspective.
In 2011 I led an expedition paddling sea kayaks across Bass Strait. I took a few photos along the way……
In August 2012 I joined a group of paddlers on an expedition in East Greenland.
A video from the trip can be seen here…
In September of 2013 I embarked on a 2 week solo paddle in the raw landscape that is East Greenland. The blog of this trip is here…
