Erin Bastian

I am an explorer, expedition leader and ocean advocate. My expeditions have taken me to many corners of the world, from sea kayaking 800km down the wild and remote west coast of Patagonia to circumnavigating large Mediterranean islands of Sardinia, Corsica and Menorca. My adventures have also taken me to the summits of 5000m peaks and cycling around Iceland’s epic ring road. 

 My day job is leading expeditions for my company Evoke Adventure, exploring stunning locations like Arctic Norway and circumnavigating Menorca. Whilst in my own time I dream up new adventures which allow me to see more of the world and challenge myself. I’m currently attempting to kayak across the Aegean Sea, a 400km journey, undertaking 16 open water crossings linking Greece and Turkey. 

Grangers have played an important role in keeping my kit comfortable and fit for purpose. I spend nearly every day working or playing in the great outdoors, which gives my gear heavy wear. I’ve been treating my waterproofs for years with Grangers Clothing Repel which keeps them performing, from my kayaking dry-suit to my mountain waterproofs.
