Welcome to Sailing Stella Polaris

In May 2016 Margrethe and Andreas cast off with SY Stella Polaris on what has so far been a very eventful trip, filled with excellent people, great food, swimming with dolphins, fleeing from a bull shark and exploring places not reachable if you’re land based. We will keep you updated with videos from our trip, so that you can see what we do and how we do it, so that you can plan your own adventures.

There is a well known saying: Sailing around the World is a sexier way to say that you’ll be fixing you boat in exotic locations. Though Stella Polaris is in great shape, components and parts are subjected to the rigors of long distance sailing, salt water and...

Green bananas are the new potato

I´ve just realised that bananas can be used when they’re still green! It`s almost like a potato, and it`s just a matter of being creative. My favourite dish, so far, is french fries, and it is hard to tell that it is made of bananas and not potatoes. Tortilla...
