Pittarak Expedition Complete

Image
On 9 July after 45 days of kite-skiing, x-country skiing and hiking, the Pittarak team has completed their amazing 2300 kilometre journey; a crossing south to north of the Greenland ice-cap.
The team consisted of three young Canadian adventures, Sarah (21) and Eric McNair-Landry (22), a brother and sister duo from Nunavut, and an acquaintance, Curtis Jones (30) from Newfoundland.
The trip was remarkably successful and completed in style. The young team kept group dynamics positive even during the many unexpected challenges they faced, such as the grueling start where the team shuttled their 350 kilos of gear and sleds over four-kilometres of moraines, rocky gullies, through mud and rain. From there the team were forced to navigate a crevasse field and cross country ski five days before they were able launch their kites and head north.
The Pittarak team pushed their limits on a Canadian day marathon using their Ozone kites to cover 412 kilometres in 24 hours, a distance that only one other team has ever managed to match!
Visit the team's website for more information or get your hands on Kiteworld issue 29 in September for the full story.
