You can’t achieve anything alone, you need to be surrounded by the very best people, advice and products.

I have been overwhelmed by the level of support I have received for this expedition. No one has said “don’t do it” they have without exception encouraged me and asked how they can help. There is a real sense that this is an aspiration becoming a reality.


I am looking for corporates (and individuals) who would be interested in financially supporting my expedition. If you are interested to discuss opportunities please click here for more information or contact me directly at: jamieramsay@live.co.uk


I am also lucky to have had the amazing support from the following companies who have provided me with the equipment I need to help me get to the finish line:

force-ten-logo The origins of Force Ten dates back to the sixties when most expedition tents used straight upright poles and heavyweight canvas. To meet the needs of explorers and pioneers of the day we designed ‘A’ tent poles (revolutionary, at the time), and used cutting edge lightweight fabrics, but with a robustness which would last many years. Since then, demands and designs have changed but Force Ten still remains true to its founding ethos to meet the needs of outdoor pioneers, driving innovation and making kit that is fit for purpose.
