Hi! My name is Juho and I live aboard s/y Sylvia. I’m now planning to spend my second winter skiing and sailing in Northern Norway, high above the Arctic Circle.
What boat is that?
- It’s a Beneteau Idylle 11.50 from 1986, a sturdy fiberglass construction in very good condition but uninsulated
Are you always alone?
- No, I have friends or my girlfriend Sohvi with me about half of the time
Does it get cold?
- Yes :)
2018: Sailed from Finland to Norway and spent the first winter
2019: Sailed to Svalbard and back, where we skied some new lines. In Svalbard participated Gdansk Technical University's Sval-POPs project, collecting snow samples for the research of persistent organic pollutants and how they’re spreading to the Arctic.
2019 summer: Collecting glacier imagery for Norway’s glacier atlas, which is a free hydrology data source, used by scientists for example to track the effects of climate change on the glaciers. Kitesurfing and sailing. Read More Read Less
