Extreme Adventure: Row To The Pole

Jock Wishart, who is an Artic adventurer and transatlantic rower, is right now leading the “Old Pulteney Row to the Pole” with a crew of the following brave men: Mark Delstanche, Billy Gammon, Rob Sleep, David Mans, and Mark Beaumont, the latter a cameraman who is going to make a documentary about this expedition. This is the first attempt ever for someone to try to row to the magnetic North Pole. The expedition, which got its name from the official partner and sponsor, Old Pulteney Single Malt Whisky, left Resolute Bay in Canada on 29 July.

This sounds, indeed, as a risky voyage. Hopefully, ‘Old Pulteney’ will keep the crew in a good mood...
