Artic Race

Any sailnetters doing this race.

Be ready for ?Sailing The Arctic Race?: the fastest crossing of the icy Northwest Passage from New York to Victoria! | Arctic05

The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.

Re: Artic Race

That sounds scary. Imagine being up on plane, sailing through fog and ice bergs. The material the boats are made from sounds interesting.
