Three years ago today, my two children embarked on an epic journey near the Top of the World to conquer the NW. Passage. Leaving Newport on the 16th. of June 2009, the voyage took five months, ending in Seattle. The vessel was a 57' Nordhavn.
Thanks to modern communication, the trip is the object of a long film documentary and will be released soon. I'll keep you posted.
