Lothian Sea Kayak Club are delighted to host an evening reliving the latest expedition of explorers Olly Hicks and George Bullard – The Greenland to Scotland Challenge.

The evening will take a look at the history of improbable voyages in small craft, the history of the legend and a first hand, fresh account of what it took to make this world first, ocean crossing in such a tiny craft.

Come along to experience this incredible adventure through some of the world’s most tempestuous and mystical seas.

Olly will deliver an evening of entertainment brought to life through stories, slides and video clips and a Q&A session.

Cost for the evening is £15 (includes refreshments. Students/Under 18’s £10.
