Atlantic Gigantic free pdf "Life is out there for anyone who seeks it and here is a great example. Colin and his crewmates seize this opportunity to sail the Gambo across the northern Atlantic despite fear and common sense warning against it, embodying a real spirit of adventure." - Mike Robinson, chief executive for the Royal Scottish Geographical Society "Every year, millions of people come to Scotland by land, sea and air, to bask in a country that boasts spectacular scenery, a rich history and culture and the warmest of welcomes. The journey to Scotland is very much part of the overall visitor experience and I think it's safe to say that Colin Souness and his friends undertook a more adventurous and thrilling journey than most to return to the land of his birth. The timing of Atlantic Gigantic is very apt following our hugely successful Year of Homecoming - a year-long celebration of the very best of Scottish culture - and I would like to congratulate Colin and company on their successful voyage!" - Mike Cantlay, chairman of VisitScotland ATLANTIC GIGANTIC, tells the true story of how three friends sailed a forty-five-foot yacht across the North Atlantic. The trio sailed from Nuuk in the West of Greenland, to Oban, Scotland. Together, they undertook an adventure. "Mankind once defined itself by the environments in which humans lived," says author Colin Souness. "Some were mountain peoples, some were desert peoples. Some were highlanders while others were lowlanders. And some were sailors." "Although human beings developed new technologies and new ways of travelling, our fundamental spirit of exploration, adventure and risk still exists." Atlantic Gigantic is, at its core, a book about respect for the immensity of the world around us. -- ABOUT THE AUTHOR Colin Souness is a glaciologist and seafarer with a passion for wild spaces. He grew up first in Scotland's west highlands and later in her rugged borderlands and has been inspired by wilderness areas from as early as he can remember. So naturally, Colin went on to study as a geomorphologist. Later, after first crewing a five-month sailing expedition to Antarctica and then joining the Royal Air Force for a while, Colin went back to uni for a PhD studying ice on Mars. Now Colin works as a lecturer and Polar Regions guide aboard ice-strengthened ships throughout the Arctic and in the Antarctic. He is a graduate of Aberystwyth University and The University of Edinburgh.
