I grew up by the sea in a small place in Northern Norway where there was no roads, so wherever we want to go, it had to be by boat. My work has been related to boats and the sea for all my life, and I have traveled thousands of nautical miles.
I have a master degree in physics, an electrical engineer and also holder of a Deck officer Class 5 certificate for pleasure Craft world wide. Now I have retired and start sailing, maybe for a circumnavigation. I have no fixed schedule or plan for the longer run, just enjoying life.

I have owned several smaller boats and three years ago I bought me a Leopard 40 catamaran and have so far logged more than 5000 nm on it. I have sailed Snowbird around the Baltic sea and some costal sailing in Sweden-Denmark. Last summer I spent four months sailing from Norway to Almerimar, Spain, before going back to Norway for the winter.

This season and the next, I want to sail the Mediterranean. Then the Canary Islands, Cabo Verde, Caribbean, French Polynesia and so on... This summer I will sail the Greek islands and Turkey.

Now I'm in Norway, returning to Spain April 15th and plan to start sailing to Crete around April 24th, a distance of about 1500nm. There will be two overnight crossings and a longer 3-4 day 450nm sail form Malta - Crete and plan to be there in beginning of June. This will be a good opportunity for someone who want some mile building.
Please take a look on the planned route in my pictures.

I have sailed mostly alone, but I'm looking for someone to join me. It would be nice with some company and a extra pair of hands/eyes. You can join the boat where you want, that we can agree about.
If we get along well, and you have the opportunity, maybe it can be on a more permanent basis.

Just send me a message, then we can get to know each other.

An amazing journey.

I joined Andor in Malta, and from the moment I stepped foot on Snowbird, I felt very welcome. Snowbird is beautiful, sturdy, elegant, clean, and very comfortable in all aspects. Andor has everything you need onboard.  with full home comforts available. Andor is a knowledgeable captain, very calm, and collected in all situations that we faced. During our planned 4-day crossing from Malta to Crete, we had an incident onboard that was unsettling. Andor was amazingly calm, gathered, and authoritative, helping an otherwise dangerous situation remain controlled. Our destination changed to Pylos, Greece. Once in Greece, we enjoyed sailing and exploring amazing anchorages and beautiful bays.  Andor is a gentleman, intelligent, informative, and has a great sense of humour. Thank you, Andor and Snowbird, for a truly amazing 14 days.

Great experience

I had sail from Aguadulce to Ibiza with Andor, it was a pity I couldn't stay longer as I really enjoyed it. Andor is a great sailor, I could had the experience of learning many skills from him. He also taught me how to sail with the sextant !! And many interesting operations to sail without a map. We struggled installing the spinnaker and he was very patient and calm. The boat is very confortable, I had never sail a catamaran and I found it very stable. It was a wavy navigation and the boat hardly moves. I had my own hull and bathroom, the boat was clean and tidy. I am glad I could have the experience.

Great skipper

Andor is a very good skipper. He puts the safety of the crew over everything and was very patient with a newbie like me. I learned a lot crossing the Baltic Sea with him.
