Offshore Passage Adventures
S&S Swan 48 Isbjorn
Experienced the Caribbean and ready to take your offshore sailing to another level? Join Andy Schell & Mia Karlsson on their classic S&S Swan 48, an all-time great ocean sailing machine, to explore the world's oceans beyond the Caribbean under sail. Andy & Mia have an extensive calendar planned through 2019 including passages to the Canadian Maritimes, Europe, the Baltic Sea, Norway & the far north Arctic waters of Svalbard & Iceland.
All of 59º North's passages are high-level, proper ocean sailing, with crew given full responsibility to sail the boat offshore. Andy & Mia take a 'director' role, and stand by to provide leadership, as the crew get hands-on with all aspects of sailing the boat, from making headsail changes on the foredeck & setting the spinnaker, to driving the boat through all conditions, and even cooking and washing up down below. Be as involved - or not - as you want to. It's your experience.
Quite simply, they aim to share the infinite wisdom of the high seas with those wise enough to seek them out. They've sailed tens of thousands of bluewater miles in their boats and others', and yet the magic of a night watch at sea remains as strong as ever. They want to share that magic with you. Join them, and find out for yourself!
