Tim Barker

Bipolar Cruising – The Adventures of Mina2 from the Arctic to the Antarctic

Mina2 is one of the few amateur yachts to have sailed into both the Arctic Circle and down to Antarctica. Having crossed 250 degrees of latitude in his Oyster 485, Tim Barker will not only be recounting the hurricane force storms and dangerous encounters with ice in the high latitudes, but he will also talk about some of the more unusual, less visited (and hotter) places he has sailed to in between. The talk will be illustrated with photographs of the spectacular scenery and wildlife that they encountered.
