  • Description


    Connect people, share the fascination of sailing or to awake your enthusiasm for the sea and winds, living with the nature is what give us the beautiful feeling to be alive.
    The years of experience to maintain a ship make us to Allrounders but not to All-knowers!
    So we will join and learn from each other!

    We are:
    Papa Birgir: Pensioner after 35 years as a Captain on a beautiful wooden-schooner. Now he is building his new "floating home - the sailing ship.

    Me, Hávar∂ur: growing up at sea with my father always being around sea. Of course I became a captain as well! My sailing ship is part of my life since 2005.
