Arctic Row Attempts World-Record Arctic Crossing
Row, row, row your boats, across the Arctic Ocean.
CORDURA® fabric is proud to be a sponsor of team Arctic Row as they begin their world-record attempt to row across the Arctic Ocean. They’ll have 30 days to cross the 1,300 mile stretch, and they’ll make the journey unsupported.
Adventure is nothing new to the crew members—who, collectively, have climbed Everest, swam the English Channel and rowed across the Atlantic. Of course, this quest wouldn’t be complete without some very durable gear for these incredibly durable people. So they’ll have a supply of essentials from Kokatat, Eddie Bauer and Sea to Summit, all made with CORDURA® fabric.
The CORDURA® brand sponsorship will help support the boat’s electronic systems, which are vital to the voyage. These systems connect the crew’s wind turbine, solar panels, backup battery systems, water desalinating unit and computer. The electronic systems will also allow the crew to send updates and pictures during the expedition.
We wish the entire team the best of luck. You can follow their progress at arcticrow.com. Be sure to explore the video links and photos from the adventure.
