About the Event

Southern Reach, is an epic tale of leading the RAF's first unsupported attempt on the Geographic South Pole. Al describes how he selected and trained his team to survive in tents on Antarctica, while skiing unsupported the 600 nautical miles to the bottom of the earth. His heart on sleeve personal account of the day to day living on the ice, from living on dried food, and toilet drills to skiing in temperatures of -45 degrees, leave you with no doubt that Antarctica is one of the most beautiful but most hostile locations in the world. He concludes his presentation by reliving the effects that frostbite had on him and the mental resilience and determination he displayed to recover, and to once again lead others to fulfil their dreams.
