In March, 2018 our team ( Mike Stevenson, Rob Trigwell and Scott Gilmour) broke the longstanding record for an unsupported traverse of Lake Baikal. During the winter months the vast surface of Baikal, the world’s largest freshwater lake by volume (this does not do it justice btw) is completely frozen. The surface has an almost black marble appearance. It is a truly spectacular place.
Over the 675km journey (approx.) we faced brutally cold temperatures, heavy snowfall, ice as hard as steel and were buffeted by strong winds. The team set a new record of 12 days 21 hours and 13 minutes.
March, 2019 we are returning to Baikal to significantly improve on the current record. You will be able to follow our attempt via the teams GPS tracking device.
