    Good morning,
    Due to heavier than normal ice concentrations in the Canadian Arctic waters north of 70 degrees, the Canadian Coast Guard, recommends that pleasure craft do not navigate in the Beaufort Sea, Barrow, Peel Sound, Franklin Strait and Prince Regent.

    CCG icebreakers cannot safely escort pleasure craft. Operators of pleasure craft considering a northwest passage should also consider the risk of having to winter in a safe haven in the Arctic, or in the case of an emergency, be evacuated from beset vessels. Safety of mariners is our primary concern.
    REGARDS,
    NORDREG CANADA

    Not a place for the solo sailor, you will probably have to abandon your yacht there. Think about taking extra crew in case you need to do 20-minute growler watches on the bow in fog.

    Even in summer fog is cold and your face and hands even with gloves will get cold after 20 minutes of growler watching on the bow. A fantastic cruising area, whales to be seen every other day, but take a strong crew with you.
