Cast and Crew

Doug Cabot

Crew member Doug Cabot, 31, combines many years of sailing experience with an adventurous spirit and a love of the outdoors. He is accomplished at cross-country skiing, canoeing, mountain biking, and rock climbing. Cabot says he is ready to return to Greenland and Viking Voyage 1000.

Looking ahead:
"I feel unbelievably lucky to be going again. As a friend joked, it's a twice-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I am also more nervous than the blithe adventurer I was last spring because I can better appreciate the seriousness of the work, the vulnerability of the boat, and distance to be covered."

"Last summer was incredible. We learned a great deal which will help assure our success this summer. And the delays and disappointments we experienced meant we got to spend over two months in and around Greenland, which is as beautiful as any place I've ever seen. Life surprises us with gifts, and that's what I make of this project. It is a chance to do something I never could have imagined without luck taking a leading part."
