Arctic Row Expedition – 1000 miles
The 4 man Arctic Row team ended its expedition after 1000 miles and 41 days attempting to be the first to row across the ice free Arctic Ocean from Canada to Russia. Incredibly bad weather trapped them behind shore ice for days at a time and then gale force storms kept them stuck in a small lagoon near Point Hope, Alaska. We are just glad the team is back safe, that some incredible citizen science data was collected and that the story of the expedition will be told in an upcoming film. You can read more about the final days and decision to go ashore here.
