Erik Boomer and Sarah McNair-Landry – Crossing Baffin Island

8 November, 2013 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

£7.50 - £10

Professional white water paddler Erik Boomer from the USA and Canadian polar adventurer Sarah McNair-Landry have covered an impressive 1,000km across Baffin Island on foot, ski and by kayak.

In an adventure that involved hand building inuit-style kayaks, dodging crevasses, dealing with tidal rapids, polar bears and snowstorms, the duo returned with one hell of a tale to tell – which they intend to do at this talk organised by the Edinburgh University Canoe Club.
