Sailed from Ireland to Greenland

I sailed from Ireland to Greenland on a 100 year old boat, climbed mountains for a month then sailed home AMA! : IAmA

The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.

Re: Sailed from Ireland to Greenland

While we sit and query why young people aren't more into sailing this adventure shows on the pc screen. Hope it becomes a book for the armchair set. While we wait check out Tillman's ' Ice with everything' I spent 5 seasons punting ice with a wooden boat in the Beaufort but without the discomfort and danger he describes Just 'WoW' Shows that real adventurers still exist.
