A refreshing breeze from the world out there

We always love the feedback we get from customers. And in these lock-down times this one from Birgitta and Eric was such a refreshing reminder of the colourful world out there. Enjoy the great snapshots from the couple on their circumnavigation.


“Ten years ago, we left Sweden for a circumnavigation, the adventure of our life. We choose Elvstrøm Sails Hydranet, to take us round the world. These reliable sails withstood extreme circumstances in the Arctic when we went through the Northwest passage as the first Scandinavian boat, and have since taken us around the globe, long passages over the Pacific Ocean, the Indian Ocean and the Atlantic, through ice and snow, sometimes storms and during long periods near the equator in tropical heat. Our Elvstrøm sails are now, ten years later, still in very good condition. No repairs have been needed and they look almost new.

We finally came to Caribbean. When Corona hit the world, we were lucky and could hide with some other boats next to a wild paradise island, Barbuda, for six weeks. A lovely time full of snorkeling, swimming, running and barbeques on the beach. Now we have a month of tough sailing ahead, heading home to Sweden. As many borders are closed the route back is uncertain. First landmark is the Azores.”
