During one season the two extreme athletes Mike Fuchs and his team will cope with a small inflatable catamaran the famous Northwest passage in the Arctic Ocean. The means of transport, to travel the great distance of the passage, is a collapsible travel catamaran of about 5 meters long. With its close proximity to the North Pole, the passage was decades as impassable, and left many expedition fail. Due to the increasing temperatures was 2008, the first "ice-free" reported.
A trip catamaran is a very small, collapsible boat, which consists of a flexible hull and a demountable sailing rig substantially. The challenge is to insist with this small catamaran that fits decomposed in the trunk of a car against wind and weather, especially against the constant damp and cold. Designed for recreational sailing, the boat is to be compared in any way with a seagoing yacht; for it offers very little space and no protection against the water overtaking waves.
This expedition will be created spectacular images that capture not only the athletes, but also the breathtaking forces of the Arctic Ocean.
- the athletes move completely autonomously
- without escort boat
- all food and water is carried along in the boat
- navigation with compass, GPS and maps
The Northwest Passage symbolizes like no other region to attempt both economically and environmentally to tap an area and shorten the transport from Asia to North America and Europe enormously. but also the necessary slowness and prudence to commit the connection with current technology and an expedition is not only to public needs but also includes a way to keep the sensitive nature of the Arctic in the balance, even if it be an essential part of globalization in the future becomes.
