sailing to world’s northernmost city – in WINTER! [ep12]


This time we’re sailing to Hammerfest, have some trouble with the genoa halyard and experience couple big snowstorms. Also included some sailing on snow (kiteskiing)! Filmed in March/April 2020.

At the end I’ll quickly go through my camera gear, because I’ve been getting a lot of questions about it. Thanks a lot to my patrons for helping me offset some of the costs for replacing my broken camera (and drone).
