I fjor deltok han på en av tre ekspedisjoner gjennom Nordvestpassasjen. Nå planlegger 79-årigen sin siste arktiske ekspedisjon.
Det er Scotsman.com som forteller historien om Bob Shepton:
Bob Shepton, a retired school chaplain from Appin, Argyll, will voyage to the region aboard the 33ft Westerly, Dodo’s Delight, in June – three months after his 79th birthday – to lead an expedition transporting a team of adventure climbers from Greenland to Baffin in search of unexplored peaks. Last year his vessel was one of only three yachts that managed to complete the west to east route of the Northwest Passage, because of bleak conditions which created a third more sea ice than normal. That journey won him the UK Yachtsman of the Year trophy.
