In July 2010  French oceanrower Mathieu Bonnier (Bouvet Rames Guyanne 2009) became the first person (to our knowledge) to row solo across the Baffin Bay. He started from Qaanaaq, north of Greenland on July 16th and arrived in Lancaster on July 28th 2010. Now he is proceeding with his expedition and is rowing solo along the North-West Passage ( 6500 km ), that links the Atlantic and the Pacific oceans, north of Canada and Alaska.
Since 1903, when Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen became the first to cross the Canadian Arctic from east to west, less than thirty complete crossings have been recorded and a single sailing without assistance of an engine

Mathieu's dog Tico, an Alaskan husky, is his only companion during the new challenge.

CONTRATULATIONS FROM THE HARBO FAMILIES TO TEAM ARTEMIS
 for remaking history with your cross- Atlantic row.

Your row is a major milestone and we applaud you for beating the record set 114 years ago when our grandfather, George Harbo and his mate, Frank Samuelsen, were the first ever to row the Atlantic in 1896. Capsizing in 30-plus-foot-high waves and their rescue are only part of their adventures. The $10,000 reward promised, never came.

It is exhilarating to re-live the excitement again as we share the news of your heroic journey. We hope to connect with all of you
sometime, some place as you pass down your tales to your decendents anxious to inherit your place in history.

We are inspired by your courage and spirit.
HIP HIP HOORAY!

Bette Horton
granddaughter of George Harbo
