This is a serious post -- we do understand the magnitude of this undertaking (at least, I believe we do). The Northwest Passage is no walk in the park; clearly it is the journey of a lifetime. And that is why we would like to tell such a story.

If anyone is interested, or has any thoughts on the matter, I would like to hear from you. Feel free to reply to my post, or e-mail me in person:

Thank you very much.
If you are a good professional and what to cover something very interesting and new you should contact Sebastien Roubinet. Maybe he is interested.

He had already done the Northwest Passage in a 7.5M cat without an engine (that is really difficult) and now he is preparing a voyage to cross the Arctic Ocean, passing on the North Pole and that, I would say, it is almost impossible.

Is this guy incredible or not?

I have already saw photos of the new boat and things are rooling. The boat, is a Cat, like Babouche, the one he used for the Northwest Passage and like "Babouche" has the capacity to sail on the water and on ice

The boat:

Take a look at the last movie of this page. That's the prototype sailing. They can make 17K...over ice.

Maybe we could entice Jessica Watson, Abby Sunderland & Laura Dekker to do the Nortwest Passage in 2012...

That boat is on its side. I thought we weren't supposed to do that.

They have capsized the boat and trained the operation to re-right it themselves. That on water at freezing temperature...just in case that happen during the voyage .

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

For some, Life is short but sweet.
I don't think that anyone will do the Northwest passage sans clothing... Something about freezing one's hinney off comes to mind.
