Talk: Tim Jarvis - Safe return doubtful - Endurance retraced

Tuesday 26 January 2016

7:30pm • Guildhall (Arts Centre) • £10, £8 for under 18 & RGS members

In March 2013 Tim Jarvis returned from Antarctica where he led a team of six men to successfully retrace the legendary polar explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton’s 1916 southern voyage of survival. Using the same rudimentary equipment, period clothing, and technology as Shackleton, the team sailed a replica James Caird life boat from Elephant Island to South Georgia, before climbing over its mountainous interior. This is the first time that anybody has been able to authentically recreate the Endurance expedition, regarded by many as the greatest survival journey of all time.
