The 64th Parallel
With a perspective usually reserved for migrating ravens, Alex Sergison and Kien Thompson survey the wide open spaces of Iceland.
The closest place on Earth to Scotland is England, so why is it that just two days north of the wall feels like an Odyssey? The involvement of gin may be a clue.

The Marquesas Expedition
Bart de Zwart retraces the steps of the Kon Tiki expedition to the islands at the end of the longest single sailing reach on Earth. Only he does it solo, with paddle and wind power only.

Dave Ewer’s latest communique from his shadowy South West proving ground rounds up the following: Red 10’6 SE, Bic Cross Adventure, JP All Water GT, Fanatic Ray, O’Shea HD, Starboard Go 11’, plus the Loco Amigo and Riber Deluxe as tested by understudy Dom Moore.
