Archived 2007 Historical NW Passage and more...

A new 2009 expedition will leave from Seattle aboard Ocean Watch, a 64' steel cutter rigged sailboat on May 31, 2009, for the NW Passage. I will be part of the crew of four attempting the Passage west to east as part of the Around the Americas expedition to raise ocean and sea awareness surrounding the continents. The 28,000 mile sail will take about 14 months beginning and ending in Seattle. Please see the links and more information will come soon. Thanks.

**Note- The expedition was successful and returned safely in June 2010. See my other blogs for details on books, traveling exhibit and to book speaking engagements.

Do you need more crew members?

Dear Sir
I have tried to contact you on your email (bluewatersouth@gmail.com), but dont know whether you use that one, so just as a backup, I am writing these lines.

Am planning an attempt to sail the Northwest Passage this summer, and have a thousand desperate questions to ask an experienced man.

Yours Sincerely
Ingvar Smith, Denmark

Thanks to you, Cap'n Shrader, and everyone else on the Arctic Ocean that attended the Barrow Rotary Club tonight. The Q&A afterwards was fascinating; so much to think about! My interest has definitely been piqued regarding jellyfish blooms. BARROW, ALASKA.
