The ‘Celeste’ set sail from Platypus Marine after repairs and being outfitted for the artic, including 2 new layers of fiberglass and a layer of Kevlar for ice protection, over the entire hull. ‘Celeste’ also had a new Yanman 3YM30 installed, new heater, new navigation instruments and much more. She is headed north with the hopes of sailing through the Northwest Passage. The sailboat’s end destination is Nuuk, Greenland. We give our best wishes to Seth and Ellen as the brave the Northwest Passage! Check out Ellen’s blog to follow their Northwest Passage adventure here.
