Beyond the Horizon
The First Human Powered Circumnavigation ; Around the World in 720 Days Without Motors or SailsDVD - 2007
"Colin Angus and his wife-to-be, Julie Wafaei, circle the world in a 43,000 km journey by rowboat, bicycle, foot and ski, completing what Outside Magazine and many others have called "one of the last great expeditions" - the first human powered circumnavigation. In June 2004, the Canadian team left from Vancouver on a two year odyssey that included rowing across 2 oceans, trekking over 3 continents, and exploring 17 countries. They managed the first rowboat crossing of the Bering Sea, travelled through the coldest lands outside of Antarctica, and trekked alongside Nomadic reindeer herders. For 5 months they rowed unsupported across the Atlantic Ocean, enduring 4 cyclones during the worst hurricane season in recorded history, to complete their 10,000 km ocean crossing, making Julie the first woman to row across the Atlantic from mainland to mainland and the first Canadian woman to row across any ocean. The goal of their expedition was to show just how far non-motorized transportation can take you and to promote no or low emission transportation as an alternative to reduce green house gas emissions to combat climate change."--Container.
