He made a very fine video of his two east-to-west attempts at the Northwest passage. The first one turned back due to ice, while the second was successful. He narrated both, complete with music, maps and flashbacks during the second attempt to the first so the viewer could compare the two. Quite a man and quite a sailor. A life well lived. RIP, Roger.
