Arved Fuchs in Brunswick
26 April 1953 |
Arved Fuchs (born 26 April 1953 in Bad Bramstedt, Schleswig-Holstein) is a German explorer. On 30 December 1989, he and Reinhold Messner were the first to reach the South Pole with neither animal nor motorised help, on skis, and with wind-assistance (parasail). Many of his expeditions have taken place on water, such as his failed attempt to sail around North Pole on a traditional sailing boat (1991-1994). This boat, named Dagmar Aaen, is still used by Fuchs on his current expeditions.
