Northabout: Sailing the North East and North West Passages
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.

Beautiful book about an adventurous Irish crew that had to traverse the Northwest Passage. Once through, they decided to come back around through the Northeast Passage, thus completing the circle in a part of the world rarely seen by man. They first built their own boat, Northabout, out of aluminium, then sailed it from Ireland to the Arctic because few had ever done it. Well written, richly laid out with brilliant photography. A wonderful addition to every dreamer's and adventurer's permanent collection.
