Podcast #109: Aanderaa third time lucky?

Tessie on her way to Iceland
Erik Aanderaa is on his way to Greenland in Tessie, a Contessa 35.

The Norwegian solo sailor Erik Aanderaa is a YouTube-hit, and it may be because he is so persistent. We met him in Grundarfjordur on the west coast of Iceland before his third-time attempt to reach Greenland. We spoke about his voyage to Iceland, his stay in the hospital in the Faroes, the women, and the upcoming Greenland sail – and more.

You can, and should, follow Erik Aanderaa on his No Bullshit Just Sailing channel.
