Yeah, this guy did both, solo. Northwest Passage and the Horn. Mind you, maybe you need a little 27 footer, an Albin Vega to dodge all the ice bergs.

I meant latitude, but yeah, I suspect with windchill it could get to -60 also!

Many times on land, but only once in the winter. Summer time... it can be very nice (and you really need to love mosquitoes!), and I got lucky in the winter one as it was only -25, which is bearable if the wind stays down.

Been out in the gulf of Alaska, north of 60, again summer time. It's flippin gorgeous there then. Not sure what it would be like there in the winter time.
