In the Nome Harbor this Summer 2013
A message from the Captain of KY GoldenRod...The unusual trawler (Espirit) was a French group. They were traveling with their families. They had 2 boats on deck. One was a small sail boat that they are going to ice sail to the North Pole. The other is a row boat that two of them are going to row from Northern Alaska to Greenland via the NW passage. I found one of them that could speak English and wished them luck. There are several boats here waiting to hear if the NW passage is open to Greenland. More Ice this year than usual and they are fearful it may not open.
