North Atlantic Crossing

Also this fall, Graeme Magor tours venues in southern Ontario — Waterloo, Hamilton, London and Kingston — with his chilling lecture "A Year on Ice."

Magor tells the tale of the 12 months he and his companions spent aboard Northanger, retracing the footsteps of Norwegian explorer Otto Sverdrup (see Canadian Geographic, September/October 1999), from a harrowing North Atlantic crossing to a winter locked in the icy grip of Ellesmere Island’s Hourglass Bay.
