 BeachCatamaran  Yvan Bourgnon SUI in the NorthWestPassage
Yvan Bourgnon SUI succeeded to round the most northern point of the North-West-Passage - the 74° parallel north - in the fourth attempt. In temperatures around -7°C, the Swiss is again forced to constantly steer his beach-cat, as there was not enough sun to load the solar-cells that feed the auto-pilot. Moreover, the main sail is frozen to the mast, and an emergency lowering is not possible, ... and this with a fresh-breeze front announced for the weekend.
