This week on Compass, humble sailor Olivier Huin tells us his story about building a 51-foot wooden sailboat and of his first attempt in 2017 at navigating the Northwest Passage from Newfoundland to Breskell’s new home in Port Townsend. In that conversation earlier this summer, he spoke of his current preparations, as he and his five-person crew prepared to make a second attempt to cross. Since then, Olivier has been reporting in each week by SatPhone. We’ll include his latest report, along with the crew's observations about the impact of a rapidly changing Arctic climate.
