About Colonel John Blashford-Snell

On Tuesday 18th January 12:00-13:00, Rosie Stancer will speak live with renowned explorer and founder of the Scientific Exploration Society: Colonel John Blashford-Snell. Col. Blashford-Snell is one of the world’s most well-known and respected explorers. He has organized and led over 70 expeditions, including the exploration and first navigation of the hazardous Blue Nile; making the first vehicle crossing of the previously impenetrable Darien Gap that blocks the Pan-American highway between Colombia and Panama; and navigating all 2,700 miles of the Zaire (Congo) River, every expedition having environmental, medical and scientific objectives.

In 1969, Col. Blashford-Snell helped to found the Scientific Exploration Society, which became the parent body for several worldwide ventures, with the support and involvement of the Prince of Wales. He then raised funds and selected a team to run Operation Drake, which involved 400 young explorers from 27 countries, on a two-year circumnavigation.

 

Ultimately, a much larger global youth programme was organised when, in 1984, Operation Raleigh was formed. By 1992, Operation Raleigh had enabled 10,000 young people from 50 countries to take part in challenges and expeditions around the world. It is now known as Raleigh International, and to date over 40,000 young men and women have benefited from a ‘tour’ on this unique programme.

 

 

Meet the instructor Rosie Stancer
An accomplished Polar athlete and explorer since 1996, Rosie has embarked on a series of major polar expeditions. In 2003 she skied solo and without resupply to the South Pole. Hauling a sledge more than twice her body weight for over 1000 km, she smashed previous speed records by 7 days, completing the extreme endurance challenge in 43 days 23 hours. Memorably described by one journalist as “a cross between Tinkerbell and the Terminator,” Rosie’s appearance belies the inner strength that has so successfully propelled her to previous polar success. A diminutive 5’3,” Rosie Stancer is not built in the image of Scott, Shackleton and Amundsen. Her achievements are testimony to the fact that dreams can be realised through skill, determination and courage. It is this ferrous determination and experience that drives Rosie towards her challenges. By being seen to push the boundaries of endurance under extreme conditions, Rosie continues to encourage others to go beyond their own expectations
