Clive Woodman

Nordic Odyssey


For the first 30 years of his sailing career Clive Woodman was a keen offshore racing yachtsman, competing in 5 Fastnets, 2 Sydney Hobarts, and one Round Britain Race, along with 40,000 miles of other assorted RORC and JOG racing.  Over the past 15 years he has completed cruises and sailing/climbing expeditions to South Georgia, the Antarctic peninsula, Arctic Norway, Spitsbergen and most recently NW Greenland. When not sailing he manages an IT company and keeps fit by rowing and cross country skiing.

In 2004 Clive completed a ski traverse in the arctic winter of the whole length of Norway, from Telemark to Finnmark and then sailed south from Nord Cap along the whole Norwegian coast in his 19ft Cornish Shrimper (yes, 19ft…). Clive will join us from Germany to tell us about this remarkable story.
