ARCH2ARCTIC
Arch2Arctic is a world-first challenge to get to the Arctic island of Svalbard from London by human power alone. "Our route is broken down into four stages; a run from London to Dover (87 miles), a swim across the English Channel (21 miles), a cycle from Calais to Tromso, in northern Norway (over 2,000 miles) and finally a row to Longyearbyen, Svalbard (over 700 miles). We begin on the 10th June, 2017, and aim to reach our destination by the end of August. Our target is to raise over 100,000 for the Scout Association. This global charity gets young people outdoors and teaches them invaluable life lessons. We hope with our challenge by representing the Scouts we will also inspire young people to dream big. Their fundraising team are fully behind this expedition and will be helping us promote it as much as possible. We are looking for the final couple of partners to fully fund the expedition. We still need to secure 20,000 of our 85,000 expedition costs. We have a variety of different packages on offer - please see
http://www.arch2arctic.com/sponsorship. We have soft launched for now but will look to do a hard launch in May, with a PR event involving the Scouts and our ocean rowing boat. This is a unique and very demanding challenge which, due to its longevity, will offer followers on social media the ultimate vicarious experience of an extraordinary expedition, carried out by two ordinary men. We will leverage the publicity we receive to the benefit of our sponsors through the means mentioned on our sponsorship page - http://www.arch2arctic.com/sponsorship". Contact: Leopold van Lynden.

ODYSSEY XX1
On the 1st November 1998, at Punta Arenas in Chile, former British paratrooper Karl Bushby took the first steps on a 36,000 mile long path that will lead him home. Unassisted by any form of transport, Karl was attempting what the world told him could not be done. He began a journey that will be the longest ever continuous journey on foot, doubling any existing records. Karl believed it was possible to journey by foot from the southern most point of South America back to England and leave behind him an unbroken trail of footsteps. This incredible journey began unsupported and unfunded, simply operating on unshakeable will, faith and endurance. The story unfolds over four continents, frozen seas, deserts and mountain ranges, from the jungles to the Arctic, in an estimated fourteen year adventure like no other. Karl has completed over nine years of this marathon, covering 17,000 miles. In 2000, he crossed the guerrilla-held jungles and swamps of the Darien Gap between Colombia and Panama - a feat even the local people considered impossible for a westerner. In 2006, he created a record by crossing from Alaska to Russia by walking/swimming the semi-frozen Bering Straits. His path now lies through Asia, across Europe and back into the UK using the service tunnel of the Channel Tunnel. He will not return home until he has walked back to the UK: as such, this is a continues endeavour. Currently the Odyssey is not sponsored. For a number of years the endeavour has been without a financial sponsor or partner, resulting in difficult logistical challenges in far north east Russia, where the politics, extreme environment and remoteness have left the Odyssey in a tight spot. The Odyssey needs a partner to see this one-of-a-kind adventure push beyond the Arctic Circle, south into Asia and for the big push for home. Contact: Karl Bushby. Address: 51 St Martin Street, Hereford, Herefordshire HR2 7RD. Tel.: 01144 1432 350776. E-mail: lostkcb@yahoo.co.uk

SKYSCHOOL AND ADVENTURE EXPEDITIONS
Following the successful use of paramotors on a major scientific expedition by the Scientific Exploration Society in the Bolivian Amazonas, it is proposed to develop the concept of using paramotors and all terrain vehicles, working together on a series of scientific projects. A small team of experts have come together to plan the ventures and they consist of the following individuals: John Blashford Snell, Scientific Exploration Society; Alex Ledger, SkySchool Flight Centre; Alan Morton, Proactive TV. The first expedition is to Botswana and the aim is to research areas of scientific interest as well as support the local community. Proactive TV have agreed to film the expeditions with the aim of placing them on either Channel 4 or the Discovery Channel. The charity Just a Drop has also agreed to support the expedition. These expeditions are clearly advantageous for either a single main sponsor or a variety of different sponsors. "We therefore propose that interested parties should contact us to discuss the options available". Contact: Alex Ledger. Address: Rams Hill Farm, Manston, Sturminster Newton, Dorset DT10 1HD.
