Frances and Gareth Watkins

Sailing to Svalbard

 

 

In 2014, Gareth and Frances decided to sail from the UK to Svalbard, a remote archipelago 600 nautical miles from the North Pole. The first step was to buy a boat. By mid 2015 they had achieved their ambition and were sailing their Hallberg Rassy 352 amongst the icebergs. They will tell us about their experiences and the challenges they overcame.
