Into Twin Galaxies.

Erik Boomer and Sarah McNair-Landry

untitled (1 of 1)American professional white water paddler Erik Boomer, and Canadian polar adventurer Sarah McNair-Landry came and did a tour of the UK a few years ago detailing their recently completed a gruelling 65-day expedition across Baffin Island, covering over a 1000km by kayak, ski and foot.

Avoiding crevasses to cross the largest Icecap on Baffin Island, Boomer, Sarah and two friends descended into the Weasel River valley. Here, Boomer did a first descent of the class 5 glacier fed river surrounded by some of the world’s tallest cliffs. This was only the first week on a two-month expedition. It was an amazing lecture (and expedition).

Since then they have continued exploring and expeditioning. It is with good reason Erik was voted “expedition-er of the year” by National Geographic magazine.

Their latest trip – kite ski across Greenland towing kayaks to get to the river and then paddle this river, which “looked interesting on Google earth”, from the glacier to the ocean, pushed them to the limit even more. The film of this trip “Into Twin Galaxies” was the winner of the peoples vote at both Banff and Kendal Mountain Film Festivals.

 

Boomer and Sarah will talk about this expedition, and their past adventures that have led them here.
