Angelo Wilkie Page
30 year old Angelo Wilkie-Page's mission is to become the first person to circumnavigate the globe from East to West and Pole to Pole, crossing all lines of latitude and longitude, using only human power, i.e. no motors, no sails, no solar.
This journey will take a period of 8 years, and will be a first of its kind – the holy grail of human powered circumnavigation. Not only will this be the ultimate test of human endurance and will-power; Expedition 720⁰ will use this journey as a platform for building awareness and raising funds for some of South Africa's most impoverished communities.
Expedition 720⁰ has committed itself to raising 1 million US Dollars by the end of the expedition for Heifer International South Africa.
Support us and together we can make a difference one kilometre at a time.
EXPEDITION 720 Degrees 2016
On the 20th of November 2014 Adventurer Angelo Wilkie-Page started his attempt to circumnavigate from East to West, and Pole to Pole under human power alone. No motors or sails. This video shows the highs and lows of the successful completion of Leg 1 ( Los Angeles - Fairbanks ) 6500Km and a portion of Leg 2 Kayak from Fairbanks to Nome. Facing temperatures ranging from +30 to -45C
Expedition 720⁰ will not only be setting out to break records, but will also be raising global awareness on important environmental and socio-economic issues, related to Food Security.
The Route is broken up into two parts, the first part is the traditional East to West circumnavigation and the second part, the ultimate challenge: the Pole to Pole circumnavigation. Each part will be broken up into 4 separate legs. Angelo will be crossing all lines of longitude and latitude, 4 Antipodal points and cross the equator at 4 separate points, as specified by the The Guinness World Records and Explorers Web regulations
