Beginning in mid-July, four Americans will embark on a historic voyage and what they’re calling one of the world’s last great firsts: a non-stop, unsupported row across the Arctic Ocean. Sponsored through the Eddie Bauer First Ascent BE FIRST program, Paul Ridley, Collin West, Neal Mueller and Scott Mortensen will travel nearly 1,300 miles from Inuvik, Canada to Provideniya over the course of 30 days in a 29-foot-long, six-foot-wide rowboat. During the expedition, they will conduct scientific research to aid scientists at The University of Alaska Fairbanks and Adventurers and Scientists for Conservation in discovering the Arctic related issues that affect us all: climate change, energy innovation and environmental protection.
