Hallberg-Rassy completed historical Northwest passage



A Hallberg-Rassy, built 1976, is the very first sailingyacht in history to sail through the most northerly Northwest passage possible. The historic passage went north of Banks Island in the Mc Clure Strait. Until now, this passage has been blocked by ice. Several boats have tried, but failed, to do this trip.

The boat is a Hallberg-Rassy Monsun 31, called Belzebub II, with a crew of three young guys; boatowner Edvin Buregren from Sweden, Canadian Nicolas Peissel, and American Morgan Peissel.
