With Cape Bathhurst ahead surrounded by 5/10 sea ice his route on the Northwest Passage is blocked. I think its time to call it a season and lay up ICE ROWER at Touktoyaktuk for the winter and evaluate returning next year to pickup the oars. Continuing on to Cambridge Bay some 660 nautical miles distant would require 44 or more days. Say an ETA of October 10th? Which is too late in the Fall with a mean temperature of only 11F with an average low temperature of 5F. I think it would be foolish to push ahead into those conditions - especially without a heater or emergency tracker aboard. Muscle rowing power cramps in the freezing cold.
Ready to start at Wales Alaska - July 1st 2013
