Adapted from The Vancouver Sun
Four men are rowing a boat from Inuvik, Northwest Territories to
Pond Inlet, Nunavut. The boat is 7.6 meters long. They left Inuvik
in early July. They hope to arrive in Pond Inlet in early fall.
This route is called the Northwest Passage.
It is a very dangerous route in the far north of Canada.
The water is cold. The route is known for its bad weather and ice.
