Sir David Hempleman-Adams was the first man to reach the geographic and magnetic North and South Poles as well as climbing the highest peaks in all seven continents; the Adventurers’ ‘Grand Slam’. Now he has crewed the first British sailing boat to sail around the NE/NW passages in one season and will give us his personal exciting account of this epic journey with the consequences of this venture and the implications of global warming.

This lecture has been organised in collaboration with the Royal Geographical Society.
