Fastest time through Northwest Passage
Graeme Kendall's boat Astral Express
A New Zealand sailor, Graeme Kendall, has just set a record for the fastest sail through the Northwest Passage from Canada to Alaska. Kendall, aboard his 12.5 metre yacht, Astral Express, started at Lancaster Sound on August 27th & exited Barrow Point on September 9, making his trip non-stop in a fast 12 days. Will the Northwest Passage become a new stage for passagemaking records?
