Historical Reference.

North-west Passage
(a marine route between the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans):

  • The North Marine Route was officially discovered by the crew of the British expedition under the leadership of Robert John McClure in 1850-1854 (this route was passed on two ships and partially on foot over the ice from the west to the east).
  • For the first time this route was passed by water in 1903-1906 (from the east to the west) by the Norwegian expedition under the leadership of Roald Amundsen, on Gjoa, a sailing vessel with an engine. This was actually the discovery of the Northwest Passage.
  • This route was completely passed by water in the opposite direction (from the west to the east) by the Canadian crew under the guidance of Henry Larsen on a motor schooner "Saint Rock" in 1940-42.
  • In 1944 Henry Larsen sailed through the Northwest passage during one navigation period.
  • In 1977 for the first time Willi de Roos, Belgium, sailed through the Northwest Passage on yacht (solo and during one navigation).

North-east Passage
(a marine route between the Atlantic and the Pacific oceans along the northern coast of Eurasia; in Russia it is called as the North Marine Route):

  • For the first time the Northeast Passage was passed by the Swedish expedition (from the west to the east) under the guidance of Adolf Erik Nordenskjold on the Vega ship in 1878-1879.
  • In 1913-1915 this Passage was for the first time passed from the east to the west by the Russian Arctic Ocean Hydrographic Expedition under the command of Boris Andreyevich Vilkitskiy on the icebreaker ships Taymyr and Vaygach.
  • In 1932 the Northeast Passage was for the first time passed during one navigation by the Soviet expedition on the Sibiryakov icebreaker ship (Otto Schmidt the head of the expedition, Vladimir Voronin a skipper).
  • In 1998-1999 the Northeast Passage was for the first time was passed through by the Russian crew on a cruiser yacht (the yacht Apostol Andrey, the owner Adventure Club, a skipper Nikolay Litau).
  • In 2002 the Northeast Passage was for the first time passed through during one navigation by the French expedition under the command of Eric Brossier (the yacht Vagabond).

The perimeter of the Arctic Ocean:

  • In 1903-1906 the perimeter of the Arctic Ocean was for the first time passed by Roald Amundsen, Norwegian explorer, on his yacht Gjoa (the Northwest Passage) and the ship Maud (the Northeast Passage).
  • The French yacht Vagabond became the first yacht, which sailed along the perimeter of the Arctic Ocean in 1982-1988 (the Northwest Passage) and in 2002 (the Northeast Passage).
