    Wild Seas to Greenland

    In a dusty boatyard in France, retired Ocean Racing Skipper Ross Field buys a 20-year-old aluminium yacht. She was a mess, but he knew the yacht was immensely strong.
    Refitted for high latitudes he set his sights on the Northwest Passage, with Rebecca Hayter along as crew.
