Norwegian Blue

The Northwest Passage


In May 2003 Zoe & Woody set out aboard 'Norwegian Blue' on a non stop voyage from the Bay of Islands in New Zealand to Dutch Harbour in the Aleutian's, a total distance of around 6000 nautical miles.

This was to be the start of an epic 5 month adventure that would take them, and for part of the trip Richard, half the way round the world and back to the UK via the fabled Northwest Passage making 'Norwegian Blue' the first British yacht ever to pass through this infamous sea route from West to East...
