Crew & Sail Offshore // #isbjornsailing

All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.
— T.E. Lawrence

All of our sailing passages are high-level, proper ocean sailing, with our 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.

Race Offshore on a Swan 48


Race Offshore on a Swan 48


Level Up.

59º North is teaming up with accomplished inshore and offshore racing sailor Paul Exner to deliver high-end ocean racing programs aboard Isbjorn. If you've already done some ocean cruising and want to take your skills and mental & physical endurance to a new level, ocean racing is the perfect next step.

Isbjorn, a 1972 S&S Swan 48, is a classic ocean racing sloop, built during the 'good old days' of amateur ocean racing. That's her in the B&W photo above, taken just after she was launched as Warbaby in 1972 during the Bermuda Race. You won't find much carbon fiber on Isbjorn, we won't be eating freeze-dried food and you won't have to cut the handle off of your toothbrush, but you'll get an authentic ocean racing experience that we think is the 'right' way to do it - in comfort & style.

We'll only be offering one racing program per year - like the RORC Caribbean 600Fastnet & Newport-Bermuda Race - and they'll fill fast. For six lucky crew members, you'll experience the challenge of a lifetime, pushing Isbjorn to the limit 24 hours per day for days on end and hundreds of ocean miles, in darkness and in daylight. It's a true challenge, offered under the expert supervision of Paul Exner & Andy Schell.
