‘Bon voyage’ to bluewater adventurer

Sprague Theobald, on board his trawler yacht Bagan, a Nordhavn 57, is expected to depart June 15 from Newport, R.I., bound for the fabled Northwest Passage.

Theobald says his goal is to record the environmental and political impacts of the ice’s newly opened channels, most notably the ensuing international battle over sovereignty of the area.

The Emmy Award winning filmmaker’s boat is equipped with a film studio to allow for production of his documentary “Arctic Grail: The Northwest Passage” while under way.
