 Roger Wallis is a legend

 
 

When Puffins was looking for a sailing yacht to charter for our Greenland Expedition in 2017, all waterways led to Roger.
He is well-known and respected amongst his colleague explorers and yacht owners and justly so.
The man’s record of achievements is dazzling.
Puffins had the chance to sail with Roger in Svalbard in 2018.

The polar area’s are his second home.
Up until now, he has sailed for film producers, rich English lords & pioneering adventurers.
If there is BBC’s ‘Frozen Planet’, it’s also thanks to Roger.
But now, we, mere mortals have the chance to tap into his rich knowledge
and enjoy the good man’s amiable company and stories.

Read more about Roger’s past achievements here.

Roger Wallis and his crew have many decades of experience in sailing the Arctic and Antarctic and given the nature of the relative small operation, I felt very much at home with friends while exploring Spitsbergen.
