Linda Beilharz reaches the North Pole

Linda, a current and active BSAR member, and her husband Rob Rigato successfully skied to the North Pole in April this year after a strenuous 55 days. At the North Pole they were helicopered out to the Russian Barneo Station and from there on to Svalbard, Norway by the last plane for the season. Linda becomes the first Australian woman to have skied from the edge of the land to the North Pole, and the first to have done the same trip to the north and south poles.

Congratulations on a remarkable achievement.

Linda is active on the BSAR committee as a delegate and is also President of AlpineSAR.
