The Arctic Circle

Our mothership, the Jan Van Gent is coming to us from the generosity of The Arctic Circle.  Our meals will be eaten on her deck and she will be the nucleus around which our fleet will gather.

She’s a 15 m gaff schooner that can carry 200 m^2 of sail. Learn more about the mothership.



Patagonia Vancouver will graciously be supplying some of their excellent products to all our participants. Known for their social , and environmentally responsible initiatives, Patagonia is a welcome member of the Barefoot Raid team.
