CA Winter Warmer: Des Crampton, trip to Svalbard, 10 Jan 2019

Des Crampton took his Ramsgate-based Cantilena of London on a 4,500 mile round trip to the Svalbard archipelago in the summer of 2014. Des will introduce his boat and her equipment and give some insight into the detailed planning necessary to accomplish an expedition into icy high latitudes. Using photographs and charts he will illustrate  the  highs  and  lows  of  a  journey beyond the  North and Norwegian Seas and across the Barents Sea to such a remote and special place.
