What a year it has been! 2016 was truly a busy year for us with lots of sailing on Isbjorn and wrapping up our last year with World Cruising Club and running the sailing rallies, seminars and boat show together with them.
In the end of December, Andy and I celebrated 10 years from when we met in New Zealand. Over a beer (or two) we reminisced about the past year and started sharing our favorite stories. It truly has been a blast, with lots of sailing and traveling. We have visited some old favorite spots and discovered new ‘need to visit again’ places. Cuba and Newfoundland are some of the new highlights and as always we wish we could have spent more time there! We got to sail Arcturus for a last time and helped her new owner getting her ready for a season in the water! I got my citizenship and Andy had his appendix removed. Because of and thanks to our busy and flexible schedule, we got to visit a lot of friends throughout the year and managed to squeeze in a weekend in the Sthlm archipelago helping out at the ‘Ö till Ö World Championship’ on the media team.
Thanks to all of you for making 2016 a special and memorable year – we are now excited about the busy 2017 ahead of us and the next 10,000 miles!
