North West Passage Solo Attempt in 27' yacht

I recently attended a seminar in Annapolis, given by single-hander Matt Rutherford. He has recently completed a 15,000 mile single handed trip in his Pearson 32 taking him to europe into deepest Africa and back home to Annapolis. His new adventure proposes a singlehanded circumnavigation of the Americas via the NW Passage and Cape Horn. Not in a big crewed metal yacht but on his own in an Albin Vega 27.
His plans are to leave Annapolis in June 2011.
Several articles have been written locally and his efforts are starting to attract attention with a few sponsors coming forward to help him along. Here is an article abt him : Sailor to try the Northwest Passage alone and benefit the Disabled
