2010 Arctic

Here's a list of most of the boats in the Arctic this summer. The winter (1st year) ice is schedule to break up early, but there is a risk (depending on the wind direction) that multi-year ice will also break early and be blown into the choke points and close them.

ARIEL 4 (Sweden) Ė Northwest Passage East to West

Alaska (Norwegian) with Espen Paulsen, Northwest Passage East to West

RX 2 (Norwegian) with Trond Aasvoll, Northwest Passage West to East

Issuma (Canadian) Northwest Passage East to West

Sarema (Finnish) Northwest Passage West to East

Peter 1st (Russian) with Daniel Gavrilov and six other young Russians, Northeast and Northwest Passage

Northern Passage (Norwegian) with BÝrge Ousland og Thorleif Thorleifsson Northeast and Northwest Passage

FIESTA (Norwegian)
with Wollert Hvide, East Greenland

JOTUN ARCTIC (Norwegian) with Knut Espen Solberg, climate research East Greenland

Saxon Blue (UK) with Harvey Jones and Andrea Stokes sailing the West coast of Greenland.

Teleport (Australian) with Chris Bray and Jess Taunton are doing the Northwest Passage in two stages and are sailing their 29 foot junk-rig boat to Conception Bay this season.
