Voyaging belongs to seaman, and to the wanderers of the world who cannot, or will not, fit in...
— Sterling Hayden, Wanderer

59º North Sailing sets an ambitious schedule, sailing 10,000 miles per year per boat, making landfall in ports from the Caribbean to the Arctic, Bermuda, Europe, Cuba, Canada & beyond on our Swan 48 ISBJORN & Swan 59 ICEBEAR. So if you've dreamed of seeing stars down to the horizon, if you yearn to lose sight of land for days on end, if you want to unplug from the world ashore, then join us for the offshore sailing adventure of a lifetime.

The goal is not to sail the boat, but rather to help the boat sail herself.

All Upcoming 2019 Passages

Note: Both ICEBEAR & ISBJORN will be sailing in company for passages #11 & #12 to finish out the year in 2019! Crews from both boats will get to meet at the start and end of passages, we’ll stay in communication at sea on SSB radio when possible, and we’ll do joint safety & weather briefings shoreside before each passage.

All Upcoming 2020 Passages

Note that a few passages in 2020 will be in company with both ISBJORN & ICEBEAR sailing together. These are ‘tagged’ as ‘2-Boat Passage’ and will be run just like any other trip, but in company with the crews from both boats! You’ll get to meet at the start and end of passages, we’ll stay in communication at sea on SSB radio when possible, and we’ll do joint safety & weather briefings shoreside before each passage.
