Hei,

Looks like you have forgotten one boat. I'm captain of Arktika and we sailed the NWP (without any assistance and without much talk about us!) in 2013 from Isafjordur (Iceland) to Nome (Alaska) via Ammassalik and Thulé (Greenland).
Will we be admitted to your private club?

Hello Gilles
What is the url to your NW Passage details? (not the brochure for tourists)
Do you have a ship's log posted on your website?
A tracker url?
That is one impressive motor-sailer!
Standing by,
Doug
