RIBbing for Arctic – 1 Unbelievable Trailer!

This trailer is beautifully edited with drone footage, great ambient sounds and atmospheric music. The RIB is a Seafighter powered by two 350 Suzukis.

“It’s not just the many miles we had to cover or the long passes we had to cross.

It’s the extreme temperatures we would encounter, the icebergs we had to navigate between, the thick fog that often covers everything in these latitudes and you can’t even see your bow.

The moving sheets of ice that usually cover a large area, are quickly transported by the wind.

The strong magnetic fields render conventional compasses completely useless since their deviation exceeds 50%.”

RIBbing For Arctic – Save Our Planet

For the last two years we have been working very hard to make real another feat that is about to take place in the summer of 2022.

It is a truly great journey, most of which will take place within the Arctic Circle. We will navigate on the wake of Vikings and great 18th-century explorers who dedicated their lives to discover the shortest passage to the Pacific Ocean.

In more detail, we will attempt to navigate the North Atlantic Ocean in order to reach the west coast of Greenland and afterwards try to cross the legendary North West Passage.

The Northwest Passage is the sea route, approximately 5,780 kilometers, located north of Canada and Alaska, linking the Atlantic with the Pacific Ocean.
