What are the chances that a Spanish diver will end up in Tromsø as a high latitude sailor and expedition leader? Pretty high, obviously. Inaki Javier Tomey Roca, Naxo among friends, has, together with his Spanish business partner, started MarineWide in Tromsø. They have done it for the love of the ocean, the Arctic and the possibility to sail the wilderness full time.
– The best boat to explore the Arctic? The one you have, is his advise.
