    WHAT IS THE OUTER EDGE POLAR CHALLENGE – Ride for Leukaemia?

    In February 2016, the Outer Edge Magazine team will depart on the journey of a lifetime – a world record attempt in Antarctica! The Outer Edge Polar Challenge – Ride for Leukaemia.

    THE GOALS 

    • To snow sail solo on the Antarctic polar plateau.
    • To prove that snow/ ice sailing and wind powered travel is a viable and environmentally friendly means of travel and transportation in Antarctica.
    • To raise funds to support the Leukaemia Foundation.
    • To challenge the current world record for distance covered unassisted and wind powered in a 24-hour period in Antarctica.
    • To monitor wind speed, snow sailor speed, surface roughness to gain some insight into snow/ice friction.
    • To engage with school students. There is a push to increase science, engineering and technology education in Australia and this expedition ticks all those boxes, thereby appealing to tomorrow’s generation of subscribers and/or their parents.
