(fastest previously some 64 days); and an epic record-breaking Expedition which had never before nor since been bettered. Rosie walked alone on the treacherous and violent arctic frozen ocean for 84 days before the ice disintegrated beyond any possibility of continuing. She had gone further than any other solo female attempt by several hundred nautical miles – setting another world record. Rosie uses her public profile to help charities. To date, those have included Special Olympics & The War Veteran Society. Historically, her expeditions have enjoyed the privilege of the Patronage of High Highness The Prince of Wales. On each of the expeditions, Rosie undertakes research – meteorological, environmental and physiological. In the Arctic, she has supported Inuit Community project work.
