Vagabond achieved the first arctic circumnavigation

Vagabond arrived on Monday 13th October at Port d'Armor, her home port in Saint-Quay-Portrieux. Her captain, Éric Brossier and her crew, France Pinczon du Sel and Gérard Guérin are proud and happy to have successfully navigated the North-West Passage. One year after the North-East Passage, the two arctic routes linking the Atlantic to the Pacific are completed. The accomplishment of these two mythic passages in succession, both without wintering or ice-breakers, is a first in the navigational history.
