The North West Passage, Past, Present and Future, Steve Brown

In 2014 Steve Brown and his 60ft Aero Rigged schooner Novara completed an east to west transit of the NWP before going on to complete a 33,000nm circumnavigation of the Americas.

In this talk Steve will look at the history of the NWP from the first explorations in the 16th century and the “golden age” of exploration by the British that ultimately led to the first successful transit by the Norwegian, Roald Amundsen. He will also look at the more recent explosion in the number of successful transits, including his own, and discuss the impact of climate change on the Inuit who live in this region.
