Following in the footsteps

15 May 2013 | 2:34 pm

Here is a short documentary of an epic journey by theCrathorne Clan. Polly Crathorne and her sisters did a coast-to-coast trip across South America following the footsteps of their great grandfather.

100 years ago he arrived by steamer in Argentina and made the epic journey travelling by train, foot and horse and cart over the Andes to Chile. POlly and her family was trying to follow in his footsteps, kitesurfing anywhere we could along the way. So how did this epic kite trip from the Atlantic to the Pacific go? 4560 km driven. 4753 m climbed.

More nights under canvas than in beds. More days kiting than not.
