A few days ago we had this: Another “Ship of Fools” gets grounded in Arctic ice, needs rescue
Jay Ayer writes via WUWT Tips and Notes email:
An 11 meter sailboat was crushed and sunk by arctic ice in the Bellot strait on 8/29/2018. The vessel was attempting the Northwest Passage. The captain may have believed the propaganda about an ice free arctic in 2018.
‘No injuries to the passengers have been reported,’ says Coast Guard spokesperson
The Canadian Coast Guard rescued two passengers of a sinking sailboat who were trapped on an ice floe in Arctic waters early Wednesday morning. The incident took place in Bellot Strait. (CBC)
