 BeachCatamaran  Yvan Bourgnon SUI in the NordwestPassage
Yvan Bourgnon SUI on his 6-Meter Beach Catamaran has been underway for four weeks now in his Nordwest-Passage journey having covered more the half of the distance. Admittedly, the stress is enormous, but he has had at least a wind from abeam on a direct course East. Technical problems the Autopilot was out-of-function and the mast started to delaminate – forced him to a repair stop in a lonely bay, not without another incident. The wind suddenly changed direction and the anchor lost ground. He could just cast his second anchor do avoid a stranding in the rocks. In the meantime, he has resumed his trip in temperatures below zero degrees and the drinking water is frozen again. But Yvan Bourgnon SUI does not give in.
