2020 - Now Open!
In late 2019 Isbjorn will wrap up her season in the Caribbean, where we'll kick off the New Year in Antigua, sailing south through the Grenadines to Grenada, and then nonstop back to Tortola. Come May, we'll sail back north, nonstop 1,500 miles to Annapolis, Isbjorn's home port, where we'll stage for the Annapolis to Bermuda Ocean Race, a new offshore race for us! From beautiful St. George's we'll sail north to Nova Scotia, then it's across the Atlantic to Ireland, retracing Arcturus' route from our first-ever Trans-Atlantic in 2011!

2020 Map Legend
$4,250 // 10 Days // 4 Crew. Join Mia & Andy and visit some of their favorite Caribbean islands that they got to know so well during their Broadreach days. This trip will be a combination of offshore passagemaking & exploration ashore, including hiking ashore, lobster cookouts in the Grenadines, & swimming with sea turtles. If we have the opportunity, we'll hire a local guide ashore for some hiking and exploring.
$5,500 // 16 Days // 4 Crew. Sail offshore on a proper long ocean passage from the Caribbean back to Annapolis. This 9-10 day, 1,500 mile passage will have it all - warm tradewind sailing as we leave the islands, negotiating the continental weather as we head north, a Gulf Stream crossing as we approach the coast and a final run up the Chesapeake Bay to Isbjorn's homeport. This will be a challenging passage both physically and mentally, with a high potential for heavy weather.
$4,500 // 11 Days // 8 Crew. Race down the Chesapeake and across the Gulf Stream to Bermuda onboard our S&S Swan 48 Isbjorn, one of the all-time classic ocean racing machines! We try to get in one big ocean race per year, and this will be our first point-to-point race after having completed the RORC 600 a few times. Racing offshore takes ocean sailing to another level, and the teamwork element of it makes it a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
$4,250 // 10 Days // 4 Crew. It's deep Atlantic all the way from Bermuda to Nova Scotia. Join Isbjorn in beautiful St. Georges, Bermuda, one of the famous landfalls in the Atlantic for boats coming and going to the Caribbean & Europe. We'll spend a day or two rigging Isbjorn for heavy weather, then set out due north for a 750-mile passage to Canada.
$3,400 // 8 Days // 4 Crew. Join Isbjorn in Lunenburg where we'll begin the journey of retracing our trans-Atlantic voyage on Arcturus from 2011. We'll sail first to St. Pierre, the last vestige of France's outpost in North America. After filling up on wine and cheese there, we'll continue north and east around Cape Race, ending the passage in St. John's, Newfoundland. Along the way we'll lookout for whales, seals & puffins galore!
$7,500 // 19 Days // 4 Crew. This will be Isbjorn's 3rd time across the Atlantic (Mia's 6th, and Andy's 5th!). We'll be retracing the route from our first-ever voyage in Arcturus in 2011, from Canada to the south coast of Ireland, where Crookhaven, a small village near the famous Fastnet Lighthouse, will welcome us back to the realities of life ashore in a pleasant and calming way!
$4,250 // 10 Days // 4 Crew Spaces. Isbjorn's last passage of 2020. We'll depart Ireland and sail south through the Irish Sea and past the famous Fastnet Rock. If we have to, we'll duck into Glandore (Donald Street's home town), or Crookhaven to wait for a good weather window to cross Biscay and make landfall in Lisbon, where Isbjorn will stage for her return across the Atlantic. Departure port in Ireland is subject to change, but most likely will be Kinsale.
