Our thanks to the support these companies have provided, it would not have been possible for us to undertake this project without their help, particularly Clever 4 who have donated this facility and Helly Hansen.

All are organisations that we believe are the best in their respective industries, providing the services and equipment that we will rely on to make our project a success.

As our project is mostly self funded we will warmly welcome any further support from any other interested companies. Particularly any help towards Communications / Communication Providers / Satelite Communications as updating this site frequently will be a challenge logistically as well as financially.

Our extreme clothing has been designed to make sure that nothing – wind, rain, heat or cold - prevents you from experiencing your own exhilaration.
