The author talks about the Arctic as a region full of challenging promises to a sailor looking for excitement and adventure. He mentions the intentions of various groups of petroleum and energy companies Shell, ConocoPhilips and Statoil to access and develop the possible hidden lucrative resource deposits of the region. He also brings into focus the unresolved international boundary claims which he believes can be settled by seafloor mapping and bathymetric information.
