|The Quest through the Pole Has Ended|
|(25-Sep-2013) The Quest through the Pole has ended for Sébastien Roubinet and Vincent Berthet, who were rescued by a Russian icebreaker earlier this month after they were unable to break through an impenetrable wall of ice and were forced to call for help.|
Well, no one ever said that Mother Nature’s predictable.
Though reports indicate that it had been fairly smooth sailing for the team just prior to the distress call, a dramatic and unexpected increase in the concentration of sea ice quickly turned the expedition on its ear. The team was ultimately retrieved by a Russian icebreaker dubbed the “Admiral Makarov.”
The following excerpt, which details the rescue, is borrowed from Sébastien’s website , and has been translated from its original French.
“This morning at 3:30 a.m. local time, we noticed a speck on the horizon; it was the Admiral Makarov. Time to finish putting everything away, and then it was moored to our ice sheet. The crew gave us a sign and then approached us, and we left with the feeling that we were abandoning our teammate, Babouchka [The Babouchka is the custom vessel that had carried the pair throughout their Arctic jouney].
With the crane, they lowered a cage for us to embark. Vincent went first, and then I joined him and we were told, ‘We will embark Babouchka.’ Fifteen minutes later, all three of us were on board and heading south at 14 knots through the ice.”
— Sébastien Roubinet
We at DP Technology are so very sorry that the Quest has ended, but also so very happy to know that our heroes are still heroes and will live to fight another day.
Sébastien, Vincent and the Babouchka made it to the Russian port city of Pevek in mid-September, but without the precious documents granting them the right to actually stand on Russian ground.
Transfer from the Admiral Makarov to the French vessel Tara Expedition was cleared for the men but not for the materials, which means that our friends left the Babouchka behind as they boarded the sailboat Tara in the midst of her scientific mission in the Arctic.
The Tara arrived safely in Tuktoyaktuk, an Inuit village in Canada’s Northwest Territories, the week of Sept. 22, and Sébastien and Vincent are now close to being back home — France and Québec, respectively.
The Babouchka remained in Pevek, where she began her new life as a sport catamaran, proudly displaying ESPRIT colors in northern Siberia.
Radio France generously covered the trip from the very beginning and, when the adventure ended prematurely, handed highly-respected sailor Isabelle Autissier its microphone for a touching radio homage to Sébastien!
