Taff Roberts and his team set out from Pond Inlet, Baffin Island, in the Canadian Arctic last August to make the hair-raising trip across the treacherous Northwest Passage to Nome, Alaska. The heavy ice prevented them from making the entire journey, and so for three weeks they navigated their sailing vessel, Catryn, back through the Davis Straight, down the rugged coast of Baffin Island and Labrador to Newfoundland.
Taff will introduce the film created from the journey and take questions afterward at an event Thursday, April 30, at 7 p.m. at the Winona County History Center. The film premiered at the Frozen River Film Festival in February. The event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
