Here’s the team of sponsors who are supporting us on our future expeditions and initatives post Crossing the Ice. Each sponsor is an industry leader and we’re proud to be associated with each and everyone of them.


Travelscene American Express

Is a network of independently owned and operated travel agents who are passionate about creating memorable travel experiences for customers.

Most of the team have traveled the world and are the perfect travel partner for our next expedition. They’ll be organizing all our travel right round the world from training in the Canadian Arctic to getting us to Buenos Aires – launching pad for Antarctica!

The North Face

The North Face delivers an extensive line of leading performance apparel, equipment, and footwear. The brand pushes the boundaries of innovation so that adventurers can push the boundaries of exploration. They have a great team the world’s most accomplished climbers, mountaineers, extreme skiers, snowboarders, endurance runners, and explorers…. Something Cas and Jonesy are proud to now be a part of.

Dual Australia

DUAL is an insurance agency who strive to be ‘Daring, First and Different’, not only with their product solutions but also with their people. DUAL prides itself on it’s energetic entrepreneurial team who are not afraid to try new things and join in the adventures that DUAL goes through as a fast-paced company launching across Asia Pacific. No two clients are built the same way so we work hard to understand and deliver insurance solutions to the particular requirements of an Insured….just like we work hard to make sure a day at DUAL is never the same! Partnering with Cas & Jonesy reflects our attitude to achieving a fun and rewarding work/play life.

Paddy Pallin

The name Paddy Pallin certainly means many things to many people. For some it brings to mind the genial personality of one of Australia’s pioneer bushwalkers. Others will recognise the name from the label of a sleeping bag or rucksack that has given a generation of faithful service in the great outdoors. Or perhaps it brings to mind the colourful history of Australia’s greatest cross-country ski race. For most people however, the name is associated with a group of specialist retail stores catering for travellers and outdoor enthusiasts.


Yakima’s engineers and designers are as passionate about the outdoors as we are. Whether it’s road cycling, mountain biking, downhill skiing, surfing, kayaking, mountain climbing or bush walking with mates or family – there is someone at Yakima doing it. They live it every day, they know what works and, more importantly, they know what doesn’t. When you go with Yakima, have the confidence of knowing that you have the finest gear-hauling solution money can buy. When they’re handling your gear, you can focus on simply enjoying the outdoors.


MailChimp are a team of about 70 developers, designers, professional problem solvers, tinkerers and takeout critics, that work around the clock to make MailChimp the most powerful email–marketing service in the universe.

The team at MailChimp are right behind us on our next expedition and helping us to keep all of you informed on what were doing! We’re looking forward to taking Freddie (the MailChimp mascot) to Antarctica with us!


On all our expeditions we’ve always taken a Garmin GPS. Founded on the principles of innovation, convenience, performance, value, and service we’re proud to have then on board as a ongoing sponsor. Although we’d never leave home on an adventure without our trusty Garmin, they have units to satisfy the motorist, commuter, cyclist, runner, swimmer, boater and adventurer in all of us.


Icebreaker have jumped at the chance to support Cas and Jonesy on yet another expedition. Icebreaker are the world’s leading manufacturer of Merino wool garments…naturally odourless and warm – it’s a no brainer for this expedition. Oh and the crew at IB are pretty alright too.

Cas and Jonesy will be wearing Icebreaker gloves, socks and undies down in Antarctica to keep the most important parts as warm as possible…and with no shower for three months, they’re glad it’s Merino!

The University of New South Wales

UNSW is providing its facilities at the UNSW Fitness and Aquatic Centre for the team’s physical training, along with training advice from the Centre’s Exercise Physiologists



Hachette Australia publishes high-quality commercial fiction for adults and children across a wide range of subject areas. It is home to authors such as Lian Hearn, Hugh Mackay, Peter FitzSimons, William McInnes, Barry Humphries…James Castrission can now be added to that list! It is an amazing honour to have one of Australia’s leading publishers behind this world first expedition!
