Display of Modern Polar Expedition Equipment

Display of Modern Polar Expedition Equipment

Oct 17 - Feb 2018

This small temporary display will be housed in the Explorers Gallery and will include a sledge, skis, bindings and immersion suit, plus cooking equipment from the collection of Ann Daniels, one of the first women in history to reach the both the North and South poles in an all woman team.

As part of Torquay Museum's Explorers' Season, an exhibition of modern day polar expedition equipment, kindly supplied by Ann Daniels.

Ann Daniels is one of the first women in history to reach the North and South Poles as part of all women teams.
Ann is a world record holder and one of Britain’s leading female explorers. Described by The Daily Telegraph as one of the top 20 Great British Adventurers of all times she is regularly asked to speak on leadership, motivation and planning for success. As a Polar guide and the only leader of all 3 Catlin Arctic surveys she is living proof that good leadership, teamwork and a positive mental attitude does make a difference to the success of a team.
