Re: Northwest Passage

Hi !
I did gave this link months ago about a Bavaria that did the northwest passage the same year that Philippe Poupon.
This is a link :

Location: Outfitting in Mobile Alabama for a homeward voyage in 2013 to Astoria Oregon - NW Passage or Panama Canal? Depends of crewing interest - North or South?

All eight crew fell through just before departure so we have re-scheduled our northwest passage for 2012 and updated the website to MV GREY GOOSE Northwest Passage 2012 Expedition Website

This 2011 season was near ice-free with 17 boats attempting a NWP - here are the details that I have on the boats:
List of NW Passage Boats

Looks like several of those boats are about to set several records and have continued on cruising - I'll wait until they make their event official with a press release.

Still a few open berths on GREY GOOSE if you are interested in what Barry Lopez, author of Arctic Dreams subtitles his book as "Imagination and Desire in a Northern Landscape".

Ready for a NWP in 2012?

Standing by,
