'Pablo', 'X-Man' or just plain 'Paul' (depending on the day) is Isbjorn's Racing Skipper & Relief Captain when Andy can't make the trip. He grew up sailing in Puerto Rico, racing catamarans along the north coast. Paul's a phenomenal teacher, earning his chops at Steve Colgate's Offshore Sailing School, and later as head coach of the University of Wisconsin's sailing team.
Paul built his own Cape George Cutter from a bare hull, then sailed her solo down to the BVI. After Hurricane Irma, Paul fixed up his damaged boat and sailed her all the way to Hawaii, where he relocated his family in the wake of the devastation in the Caribbean.
Paul will also skipper ISBJORN on the Bermuda-Annapolis passage in May, and again on the passage south from Annapolis to the Caribbean in November 2019.
