For those of you that haven't been following their blog , Alex, Kimbra and Corrie have successfully sailed over the Northwest Passage and are now poised by the South tip of Greenland in preparation for crossing the North Atlantic to England. They are only the 26th small boat to ever complete this passage and they have had big adventures since that evening in June when they were in our living room! They are three of the most unassuming, friendly and competent folks I've had the pleasure of meeting and Goldfish and I wish them safe passage on the final leg of their journey.
For all adventurers, armchair and otherwise, I'd urge you to consider contributing to the Berri's voyage here - Alex is entirely self-funded, he is definitely not a corporate type. I'd consider it a personal favor if you did, as Goldfish and I have, and consider it well spent. For any that haven't, take some time and catch up on their blog as they had a front row seat this summer to one of the most gripping stories on Earth - the melting of the polar ice caps - complete with swimming polar bears far from shore.
The video is of the Berrimilla leaving the Small Boat Harbor in Dutch Harbor, the morning of June 29, 2008. Picture this 33 foot sailboat sailing from Australia to Dutch Harbor, then over North America to Greenland, and now on to England - how did YOU spend your summer vacation???
