DESCRIPTION

Why sailing above Arctic Circle (66°33´N) by an inflatable boat?
Firstly, because we believe it is possible. Secondly, accordingly to all information available, it has not yet been done. Thirdly, because we want to prove that an inflatable boat with a solid bottom is by far the most suitable for sailing in extreme conditions. Because we believe this type of boat is one of the safest, fastest, most reliable and cheapest vessels able to sail in most difficult circumstances. Because such boats are used for professional purposes daily and on the most difficult of seas. Because sailing above Arctic Circle represents an ultimate test of endurance for the equipment and for the crew. And finally, because this would be excellent preparation of the next inflatable boat expedition – crossing of the Northern Atlantic with a short stop in Greenland.

About Norway
Norway is a country with an extremely long and demanding coastline. The total length of it is 3 000 kilometres reaching from Skagerrak in the South to Barents Sea in the North. Most typical coastal features are the so-called fjords, immediately followed by heights. Should all fjords be taken into account, the coast of Norway comes to fascinating 25 000 kilometres. The density of population is very low – only 4,6 million inhabitants for the total surface. One of the reasons for that is certainly the most difficult accessibility to certain areas. Climate differs across the country. The Gulf Stream influences the weather making it quite mild regardless of the geographic position. The more one moves to the North, the more quick weather changes occur. Most suitable time for sea travel is from late spring to mid-summer, when the weather is relatively stable and dry. For the Finnmark area in the North of the country, extreme differences between temperature minimum and maximum can occur – up to almost unbelievable 83,8 degrees Celsius. Out in the open sea, strong winds result in high waves. The configuration of surface in fjords makes the wind constantly change its direction and power. Wind speed can rise from 20 to 40 knots in a couple of minutes. In fjords the wind usually blows up or down the channel. High tides are another characteristics of Norwegian sea. They are strongest in the North and cause strong sea currents. The town of Bodo with its surroundings is known to be the area with the strongest sea currants in the world. 33 kilometres southern, in the narrows between Saltenfjorden and Skjerstadfjorden, the tides cause currents up to 20 knots. Navigation in fjords is a demanding task, due to the lack of orientation points. Sailing in the open seas is extremely dangerous because of the high waves and mixing of currents. Another danger is represented by the coast, at certain points very shallow and at other almost inaccessible due to high cliffs.

The northernmost point of Europe
Nordkapp is a peninsula on the island Mageroya in the community of Nordkapp in the North of Norway. This steep, 307 meters high cliff is - because of its geographical position 71°10′21″N, 25°47′40″E – often considered the northernmost point of Europe. But in fact Knivskjellodden, a place that we plan to visit is about 1500 meters further to the North. Nordkapp is visited by approximately 200 000 tourists every year. The name North Cape (Nordkapp in Norwegian) was given by an English researcher Richard Chancellor, who was sailing around it in 1553, during his quest for the Northwest passage.
