In 1743 a Russian ship hunting for walrus was blown off course and became trapped in sea ice off the coast of Svalbard. Four men went ashore in search of an abandoned hut on the island. They found it but when they returned the ship had gone. They survived for six years until another also off course rescued them. A remarkable survival story.
An instructional journey around the spectacular islands of St Kilda. Exciting and practical rescue coaching sessions, from one of the world's top coaches, mixed with a spectacular journey to a remote cluster of islands in the north Atlantic. Eight coaching sessions lie at the heart of this DVD and cover essential sea kayak rescue techniques - over 80 mins of coaching.
