THE NEXT ADVENTURE
In July 2016 I will join a small group of experienced sea kayakers that will attempt to paddle up the East Greenland coast to the 1932 Basecamp of Gino Watkins. Watkins was assessing the suitability of East Greenland for a trans global flight from England to Winnipeg. The Basecamp was in Tugtilik Fjord, 100kms north of the nearest small settlement. Watkins died in the fjord 20th August 1932 while hunting seal alone in his kayak. This is a remote region and has only rarely been visited by kayak.
Follow me on my next expedition in East Greenland. You can track me on this web page starting 26th July 2016
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.
