Seven Seas, Seven Summits

Graham Hoyland hopes to be the first Briton to complete a voyage across the Seven Seas and to the top of the Seven Summits. Can it be done?

When Graham had climbed Mount Everest and McKinley, the two hardest mountains, and had sailed across the Southern Ocean to Antarctica by sailing yacht, certainly the most difficult ocean, he became confident that this project was possible and is now writing a book on his experiences as he completes them. The well-known actor and adventurer Brian Blessed is patron of the “Seven Seas, Seven Summits” expedition.

Since the conception of ‘Seven Seas, Seven Summits’ Graham has climbed all but two of the summits and is now concentrating on sailing more seas, with the North and South Pacific completed in 2024.
