4. Start Adventuring with Maps
Maps have been a passionate tool for Chris Howard over the years, helping him complete ambitious journeys along Britain’s coastline – both on foot and by boat. For his next unforgettable challenge, Chris is preparing to run 14 marathons in 14 days through 14 of the country’s spectacular National Parks. At the Armchair Adventure Festival last year, Chris created his own personalised SplashMaps tailored for all weathers, meaning he’ll stay safe, dry and warm throughout his tough yet rewarding journey. To hear more about this brave adventurer’s story, head down to meet him at 10am on Sunday.
5. Survive with Maps
Kev Newton’s career has seen him protecting the famous and adventurous in remote areas around the world. As the lead instructor of RAF St Mawgan’s SERE (Survive, Evade, Resist & Extract) unit, he knows a thing or two about surviving in hazardous conditions. At 12 noon on Sunday, come to C46 to learn first-hand from Kev how a fabric map can give you an advantage in even the most dangerous situations.
6. Make friends with maps
Matt and Reece’s noteworthy journey around the world by moped and sidecar was a fascinating experiment in the power of human kindness. On their voyage, they made a lot of friends who were drawn to their extraordinary stories which they had mapped out onto a SplashMap. That is why we share stand C46 with the Armchair Adventure Festival they founded. We’re honored to be their mapping partner.
7. Waterproof Paper Maps and Charts
Need a map that can go where you do? Look no further – our waterproof maps & charts are designed to brave all kinds of weather and adventure! Durable, lightweight, and super simple to use, they’re better than paper equivalents and more reliable than any device that relies on battery or signal.
