Martin Hasselov is a sailor and PHD scientist based on the beautiful West Coast – which the locals call the ‘best coast’ – of Sweden. Martin has a lifelong love for the sea which started as a small boy fishing in his families rowboats. After college he built a steel ketch from a bare hull to explore further afield. Now armed with a PHD in marine science, Martin recently bought an ex-BT Challenge yacht – a steel 67-footer designed for a southern ocean circumnavigation the ‘wrong way round’ – and uses it as an educational platform for promoting marine science locally, and exploring the world’s oceans further afield.
