 BeachCatamaran  Yvan Bourgnon SUI in the NordWestPassage  the final part
After weathering the two day's storm moored in a bay, Yvan Bourgnon SUI started to the final part of his adventure ride 400 miles across the open sea direction Greenland. Cold temperatures, fog and drift-ice will accompany him during the coming four days. The stopover in the bay was not very accommodating, as the 60 kn storm lifted the hulls to an extent that he had to constantly hike his beach catamaran even without sails to prevent her from capsizing !. The solution was then to flood the hulls with about 200 litre of water each to stabilise the cat.
