Upcoming Scots In Us podcast: The Impossible Row – with Jamie Douglas Hamilton

The Impossible Row


THE IMPOSSIBLE ROW Jamie Douglas-Hamilton and his team of rowers became the first to row from Cape Horn in Chile to Antarctica, battling brutal storms and freezing conditions in the notorious Drake Passage – the world’s most treacherous stretch of water.


On December 7th at 7PM EST we will release this exciting podcast with Jamie Douglas Hamilton as Jamie takes us through his historic row which took place last December with footage and the story from this adventurer.

Jamie Douglas-Hamilton was part of the six-strong team who completed ‘The Impossible Row’. The crew set off from Chile to mainland Antarctica across the Drake Passage and became the first group to row the body of water between Cape Horn and the South Shetland Islands by human power!
