Olly Hicks Presentation "Kayaking from Greenland to Scotland"
Tue 21 March 2017, 19:30 – 21:00 GMT
North East Sea Kayakers are delighted to host an evening reliving the latest expedition of explorers Olly Hicks and George Bullard – The Greenland to Scotland Challenge.
Hear about the 1,500 mile kayak expedition from Greenland to Scotland to prove the legend that the Inuit may have found their way to Scotland in the 18th Century.
The evening will take a look at the history of improbable voyages in small craft, the history of the legend and a first hand, fresh account of what it took to make this world first, ocean crossing in such a tiny craft. Talking in Aberdeen will be particularly poignant for Olly as the Inuit Kayak in Aberdeen University Museum is the source of many of the legends which inspired the trip.
Come along to experience this incredible adventure through some of the world’s most tempestuous and mystical seas.
Olly will deliver an evening of entertainment brought to life through stories, slides and video clips and a Q&A session.
