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.
