Row, row, row your boat, all the way to the Pole...

Team plans to row to the North Pole - Scotsman.com News

Scottish explorer Jock Wishart, pictured, is intent on leading a five-strong crew through some of the harshest conditions on Earth as they navigate 450 miles of Arctic waters on a route only now accessible due to global warming.
The challenge will take place in July and August next year and is being promoted as of global significance, being both a pioneering maritime adventure and an environmental expedition.
They will also have to haul the boat overland to complete the gruelling journey.
The expedition is being sponsored by Old Pulteney whisky, a brand with a maritime heritage and history of supporting sailing and seafaring adventure.

The accompanying map reveals it is to the Magnetic Pole they will paddle. That global warming must be devastating the Arctic ice...


Of course it was the magnetic pole that Jezzer Clarkson drove to in his 4x4 expedition.

At least they will try July-August, unlike the eedjuts who tried it in April-May. And the Magnetic Pole - they just might make it, though I'd not give odds.
