North Pole Questions

How-to, FundingJames Hipkiss


Hey there guys and gals,

I am in the process of gathering information and the logistics of successfully doing an expedition to the North Pole and back from Canada. Has anyone done this before? If so, I would love to get in contact with you and ask you a few questions.

Best Regards,


Gulf/Keys Row

How-to, FundingJames Hipkiss


In 2012 I rowed on board The Limited Intelligence, an ocean row boat which has successfully completed three ocean crossings.

Ours was a much shorter trip, about 6 days of rowing through the Florida Keys. We spent a day on the Atlantic during the duration of the trip and enjoyed the experiences, from battling storms at the start to encountering marine wildlife.

This gave me a taste for open ocean rowing and I would love to complete a longer journey in the future.
