Multihulls and Mountains - 2017

Aconcagua for Austin

Sara climbed Aconcagua, standing at the jaw-dropping total of 6,960.8 metres (22,837 ft) tall, the highest peak in the Western Hemisphere to raise money for the medical expenses of Austin Biggs, age 6; who was diagnosed with ‘Very High Risk Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia’. Sara’s efforts helped to raise awareness for childhood cancers and to raise funds to help cover Austin’s medical expenses.

Summited Mount Elbrus

Sara overcame a climbing injury to her knee when she summited Mount Elbrus, a dormant volcano which stands at a dramatic 5,642 metres (18,510 ft); making it the highest peak on the European continent - and only 10 days after getting off crutches. Elbrus sits on a moving tectonic area, and has been linked to a fault - it has an active supply of magma deep down.

Conquered Kilimanjaro

Sara Hastreiter - Adventure
After working as an intern with an HIV/AIDS clinic in the summer of 2006, Sara planned to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest peak on the African continent. After being struck down with malaria, she knew her chances of beginning the expedition were slim, let alone completing it. A week after being released from the hospital, she attempted the climb anyway, promising herself that she’d be impressed with making it only a few days. She shocked everyone by standing on the summit just 5 days later.
