One of the joys of adventure sailing is just stopping. We often didn’t plan where or when, but somewhere looked lovely, we anchored, caught some fresh fish and just get the BBQ and a few cold beers going and have an impromptu and always v special evening. #arctic #norway #explore #sailing #yacht #yachtlife #adventuretravel #adventure #sailinstagram ...

Being out in the middle of the ocean can be quite the spiritual experience, especially at sunset. You are thousands of miles from land, totally alone and as close to nature as it’s possible to be. It’s beautiful, peaceful and yet always on the back of one’s mind is the knowledge that such awesome power can be unleashed at short notice. It’s hard to feel more alive.

True adventure means an element of risk, an element of the unknown and of where the outcome is not set.
Being out on the ocean is a serious business and before every trip, we train hard with the new crew to ensure we know how to rescue a crew member should they fall in. Time is of the essence especially in cold water. However rushing is almost guaranteed to make this go wrong. It’s so hard to do, but in an emergency one has to slow down, calm down and get the job done right first time.

We are missing being out on the ocean SO badly. You? When did you last get out and what are your plans? We want to hear! #sailing #explore #yachtlife #yachting #offshore ...

Polar bears are a real threat up in Svalbard. We’ll do everything possible to avoid them and not harm them - it’s their land after all - but we still carry powerful rifles just in case. All Rubicon 3 crew heading to polar regions have to train on rifles to ensure they are ready. We also carry flash bangs and screamers to try and warn off a bear before we would ever resort to the rifle.
The ammo is large caliber .303 style with hollow tipped rounds to cause maximum damage on impact. It’s a horrible thought but if it ever came to it the bear has to be stopped. Their skulls are so thick that 5.56 rounds would just bounce off. All in a day’s work for a Rubicon 3 sailor! #challenge #holidayinspiration #sailing #sailinglifestyle #polar #adventure #yachtlife

As light fades out on the open ocean, you have to ensure you are prepared. Things are much harder in the dark and if things go wrong, much harder to fix. Night sailing is exhilarating, spectacularly so. Just be careful. Be prepared! #sailing #challengeyourself #holidayinspiration #offshore #yachtdesign ...

We love helping people get out on the water and have a real adventure. It can be sailing to Iceland or sailing across the Atlantic. There’s nothing stopping you..... if you want to know more, just ask us. #sailing #sailinglife #sailingadventure #sailingboat ...

Sail the Norwegian archipelago's largest island, it’s a dramatic wilderness of glaciers and mountains, ice fields and barren tundras, extremities of light and dark, and home to more polar bears than people, yet people it has – making this a destination in which you can truly experience life in the high Arctic. #arcticadventures #arctic #arcticcircle #arcticlife #nature #norway #guidetogreenland #travel #remoteplaces #sailingadventures #sailing #sailinglife #sailboat #sailingyacht #sailingtime #liveaboard #oceansailing ...
