Sailing with Thomas

Sailing solo around the world in a Bavaria 55 Cruiser – S/Y Be Free.
Most of the time sailing single handed and occasionally with friends and other guests. Dreaming of crossing the Pacific singlehanded.

Most of my life has been in the small coastal town Tønsberg, 95 km south of Oslo. With the national park at our doorsteps, and the Oslo fjord and Skagerak sea outside the windows, it was almost mandatory to own a boat. I´m almost raised in a sailboat and had my first by the age of 7. Not only did we spend 3 weeks every summer, and every weekend of my childhood, on the lean (Sailing) But my parents owned a boat factory, where they manufactured sailboats and smaller motorboats. So I think its fair to say I’ve been into sailing my whole life.

MY LAST JOB
Full time working for the Norwegian Society for Sea Rescue, and almost 10 years as voluntary and skipper for the Norwegian Society for Sea Rescue.

ONE LIFE
SAIL IT WISELY
