In 2018, Captain Clemens Gabriel, along with his family and a group of modern-day explorers including Australian Tim Charody, set out on the adventure of a lifetime: journeying through The Northwest Passage – one of the most dangerous nautical sea routes in the world.
Known for its beauty and deceptive calm, many have attempted it, but very few have succeeded. The group quickly learns the price of adventure when their voyage unravels into a life-or-death crisis forcing all hands-on-deck.
After several record-breaking summers of warm temperatures in the Arctic, Captain Clemens Gabriel and his crew were one of 23 ships who expected smooth sailing as they attempted the perilous Northwest Passage through the Arctic in 2018.
However, after setting sail from The Marshall Islands to tackle the impossible, they quickly encountered the coldest season in 25 years. 21 ships turned back immediately, but Captain Clemens Gabriel made the shocking decision to push through.
Equipped with a 40-year-old boat, no formal training and no financial backing, the crew is a self-sustaining and unfunded group of modern explorers who must fix and correct every hardship and obstacle that stands in their way using only elbow grease and ingenuity.
With an unfiltered look at the motivations, fears and struggles of the crew who survived a perilous 8-month journey into the legendary Northwest Passage, Expedition To The Edge is the story of one family on their epic, emotionally charged journey to follow their dream and have the adventure of a lifetime.
