Cruising the Northwest or Northeast Passage

Let's keep this thread to information on actual boats doing the Northwest Passage or the Northern Sea Route.

No climate change stuff.
No environmental stuff.

Just boats doing it, planning on doing it or why they would never do it again.

I'm not ready to do it. In fact, until recently, I was not interested. I think the Arctic is boring, plus all the other issues. But an almost ice free passage would be very enticing,especially because in a few years I will be in Northeast Asia and wanting to return to Northern Europe.

The Northern Sea Route would probably be ideal, if not for political issues and the rules Russia has imposed. On the other hand, if I had a crew-mate who was Putin's buddy, maybe it's doable.

I'd also like to know what temporary protections people have done for their hulls against sheet ice (not pack ice).

thanks all

Re: Cruising the Northwest or Northeast Passage

The NSR would be excellent choice if there weren't that Russian bureaucracy. It take's years to get the permit if at all. Right thou having a close contact to Putin helps.

Re: Cruising the Northwest or Northeast Passage

Northabout did both the NSR and NWP last season. Their web site is a good source of information about preparation, etc..
