Podcast #148: Ella goes round the North Pole

Ella Hibbert (27) is very busy these days. She is working hard to get her Yeva, a steel Bruce Roberts 38 ketch, ready for a grueling solo, non-stop circumnavigation of the Arctic circle this year.

This is how she describes her solo circumnavigation of the North Pole: «She will be sailing from Haslar Marina, in the Solent, up the East coast of England, to a start point on the 66.5°N latitude of the Arctic Circle between Norway and Iceland. Then, around Iceland, southern Greenland, the NotthWest Passage through Canada, across Northern Alaska, and into Russian waters. Crossing the Laptev and Kara seas (NorthEast Passage) and eventually back to her starting point near Norway, before heading down the coastline of the UK again to set foot ashore, for the first time since leaving, back in her home base of Haslar Marina, England. «

The Arctic expedition has been officially endorsed by the Scientific Exploration Society.  

You can, and you should follow her and maybe support her. Check out Ella in the Arctic website.

Keen on sailing the Norwegian coast? You should be. Read Sail the Norwegian Coast: How and Why you should sail the most beautiful coast in the world – Kindle edition.

If you need information about sailing in the high latitudes check out the book I wrote with Bob Shepton: High Latitude Sailing – Self-sufficient sailing techniques for cold waters and winter seasons.
