RIB expedition arrives at Arctic Circle

A team, including adventurer Pete Goss, has made it from Scotland to the Arctic Circle in six days using six-metre RIBS

The GORE-TEX Arctic Challenge crews have made it to the Arctic Circle, battling rough seas and a 10-hour, 220-mile night crossing from Shetland to Maloy, Norway, to complete the adventure.

The seven-strong team which took on the mammoth task in a bid to prove the capabilities of Humber RIBs, as reported in last month’s MBM, arrived in Svolvaer in the Lofoten Islands at 8pm on Sunday, having travelled 903 miles on water.

Adventurer Pete Goss said: “This has been a great trip where I have learned exactly what a RIB can do when put to the test. Thanks to a lovely group of people it has been extremely fun and Norway is breathtaking.

“As we came into Svolvaer we all felt immensely proud of our achievement and I truly hope it inspires others to get out onto the water and explore.”
