Objective North Pole on a catamaran
You know that at the magazine, we have our ‘favourites’, those slightly crazy adventurers who command our respect with their extraordinary expeditions.
During the summers of 2011 and 2013, Sébastien Roubinet tried twice to cross the Arctic Ocean via the North Pole, aboard a hybrid between an ice yacht and a sport cat, the boats ‘Ti-Babouche’, then ‘Babouchka’. This book retraces these two extreme adventures, successively with Rodolphe André, then Vincent Berthet.
An essential book, to understand that even in the 21st century, adventurer-sailors still exist, but also a good way of escaping a little to an icy world of a fabulous wild beauty, populated by aggressive polar bears.
The book can be ordered on the expedition’s web site, at the price of 20 euros.
