TPZ193: From England to Norway in a Converted Lifeboat with Guylee Simmonds and David Schnabel The Pursuit Zone

    • Places & Travel

In February 2018, architects Guylee Simmonds and David Schnabel bought a marine survival lifeboat and spent a year converting it for a four-month, 5000 km voyage to the Arctic.  Along with a dog named Shackleton, they traveled from the UK to Tromsø, the largest city in the Arctic, situated far north in the Norwegian Fjords.  The aim of the expedition was to design a self-sufficient boat capable of taking on the harsh environments, explore the wild and isolated Arctic landscape, and document the adventure through photography and film.  You can learn more at the website arctic-lifeboat.com.  Guylee and David, welcome to The Pursuit Zone.
