The Northwest Passage Challenge, Jimmy Cornell

The Northwest Passage Challenge: two summers in the High Arctic, by Jimmy Cornell

In an attempt to transit the Northwest Passage, in the summer of 2014 Jimmy Cornell sailed his new Aventura on a maiden voyage to Greenland and Arctic Canada. The attempt was abandoned because of unfavourable ice conditions. Undeterred, Jimmy sailed south, transited the Panama Canal, and is making a new attempt this summer to accomplish a transit of the NW Passage, this time from the Pacific to the Atlantic.
