Eight Irishmen and their 47-foot boat Northabout left Westport in June 2001 to sail the Northwest Passage. The crew endured hazards of ever-moving ice and navigation through narrow channels of open water. They photographed the harsh beautiful landscape and superb wildlife. They completed the voyage in a record 13 weeks.
