As a group we are all fascinated by the different corners of the earth, so when Jamie Young came up with the idea of sailing to Greenland and then doing a 250mile kayak trip along the coast and climbing some unclimbed cliffs, the rest of us jumped at the chance. A mixture of youthful exuberance and experienced old heads, combined with a healthy level of competition among the crew, the voyage stands to be a clash of people, ideas and cultures, and all of it will be captured on camera! Following the path originally travelled by Brendan the Navigator on his way to America, we are continuing the proud tradition of exploration so intrinsic to the Irish culture. Through this website and blog we want to invite as many people to be part of the adventure as possible.


  • To complete a 250km sea kayak voyage
  • To conquer a number of 1st ascent climbs
  • Visual documentation of the expedition
  • To compile a photographic record of the Greenland coastal environment
  • To arrive home safely to Galway in August!


We will be utilising state of the art GPS navigation equipment on our expedition. Our co-ordinates will be fed back to our home base in Ireland whenever communications are possible and then updated on a series of maps.


An expedition like this simply could not happen without sponsors. Please help us thank them by visiting their pages.
