The Pole Is Reached

On 17 August, HTBS wrote about the 'Old Pulteney Row to the Pole' which was the brainchild of Jock Wishart (on the left), a seasoned Arctic adventurer and Transatlantic rower. Jock led a small, brave crew of five men in a world's first attempt to Row to the Magnetic North Pole. How did it go? To read the story click here.

In this video you can watch and hear about the crew's hardships of trekking over the high Arctic to reach a place where a plane would pick them up. Because of all the gear, the men had to make two trips. Well Done, Boys!
