As part of a two-year project, a group led by Jamie Young, and with the great support of Gaelforce & Killary Adventure Co, will be filming a documentary about Greenland and the wider Arctic. Jamie is one of the original founders of Gaelforce and was instrumental in bringing one day adventure racing in the form of the original Gaelforce 6 and Gaelforce 12 (now Gaelfore West) to Ireland.
