Sea Gypsies to be played at Bootcamp!
Director Nico Edwards joins us at Bootcamp for a live screening and Q&A
The Armchair Adventure Bootcamp returns to your living room from 25th-27th February 2022. It's a full weekend of workshops, masterclasses and talks on all things adventure. The event is designed to save you money and time in planning your adventures and make sure have an experience of a lifetime when you finally set off on that dream trip.
To get us in the mood for more than 20 hours of informative sessions we'll be holding an evening of inspiration on Friday evening. For this first night we like to chat about big, exciting and different adventures and Sea Gypsies ticks all of those boxes!
Here's what it's about:
"The vessel is Infinity, a 120ft hand-built sailing ketch that plies the Pacific Ocean on a never ending voyage of nomadic exploration. In early Feb 2014, during the iciest year on record in the Southern Ocean, Infinity and her crew of 16 left New Zealand on an 8,000 mile pacific crossing to Patagonia, with a stop in Antarctica. Along the way, they battled a hurricane of ice in the Ross Sea, struggled with compounding mechanical and flooding problems, undertook a mission with the radical environmental group Sea Shepherd, tore every sail they had, and unwittingly went further south than any sailing vessel in 2014. This expedition was undertaken with a non-ice-reinforced gypsy boat built by hand in the 1970's, crewed by a band of wandering miscreants, with no permits or insurance and an almost non-existent budget. This is a story about sailing, the camaraderie of a shared struggle and the raw awe inspiring power of the natural world."
