EXPEDITION TO THE EDGE
Following the two warmest Arctic summers on record, the sailing vessel Infinity tackled the Northwest Passage, attempt to reach the Northernmost inhabited settlement on the planet, aptly named Alert. The route, over 4,000 miles, speckled with 36,000 islands, a truly vast labyrinth of ice; just 10% of which has been charted. This is the most dangerous maritime route in the world; more people have been to the top of Mt Everest than have successfully taken a sailing vessel through the Northwest Passage, and no one has ever sailed that far north.
