Northwest Passage on a Shoestring
Would love some feedback.

I am planning a trip on a 31ft boat from Sweden-Norway-Scotland-Iceland-Greenland through the Northwest passage to Vancouver this summer. If any of you have experience high lattitude sailing, sailing in ice, required equipment I would like to hear back from you. If you want more detail about the boat, trip etc. check it out and please give me your feedback.

Sounds like a great adventure. The only advice I can give would be to do all your homework and talk to people that have done the trip before you leave and plan to be very self sufficient. There is not much help up there if you get into trouble.
When you get to Vancouver let me be the first to buy you a beer!
