ScopeUout sponsors Guinness World Record attempt

SWOOSH Snowsailer

When it comes to adventures and crazy missions, we love to get in on the action. That’s why we’re stoked to be the optical sponsors for an exciting new Guinness World Record being set by a Brisbane based team of adventures in the depths of Iceland.

Headed by 59 year old publisher, adventurer and expedition founder, Charles Werb the team will attempt to set the record of the Greatest distance covered in 24 hours - Snowsailing between 23rd June and 3 July in their custom designed SWOOSH snowsailer.

Designed and built in Brisbane, the SWOOSH is a world first transportable snowsailer. Tested in Antarctica in 2016, the snowsailer is powered by wind, gliding across the snow and leaving nothing in it’s wake but tracks.

We know that whatever the adventure, having a good pair of binoculars on hand is imperative, so we’ve packed the team off on their expedition with two Kowa SV 8x32 Binoculars. These quality binoculars from the world renowned Kowa optical brand will be put to the test in the harshest of conditions and give the team the all important view they need to successfully set the record, and stay safe whilst doing so.

The world record attempt, along with a review of the binoculars will be documented in the next edition of the Outer Edge Magazine so be sure to subscribe to the magazine on the Outer Edge website. The team will also be filming a documentary about their expedition which will be aired at the upcoming Women's Adventure Film Tour

We’re also giving OE readers the chance to save 5% on all orders storewide at ScopeUout and to win one of the Kowa SV 8x32 Binoculars (worth $549.99) that the team took with them on the expedition! You can find out more about the offer and competition in the magazine. 

Be sure to keep up with the SWOOSH snowsailing action on their Instagram, Facebook page and by using #teamswooshiceland

Best of luck with the expedition guys - we're backing you all the way!
