Graeme Kendall Sails Non-stop through Northwest Passage

63-year-old Kiwi sailor Graeme Kendall has become the first person to sail solo non-stop through the Northwest Passage, completing it in 12 days in a 12.5m boat built for the trip. He is currently in the North Pacific returning home to Auckland, New Zealand. The ice-bound passage north of Canada and Alaska is considered the "Everest of the sailing world". []
