I was born in Sweden and raised in Switzerland (German part). After graduation from College in Sweden (Engineer), I moved to Canada with my parents. I started my own companies and basically semi retired when I was 35 already. I always dreamt about sailing around the world, but I have been stuck in the Caribbean for the last 24 years (not necessarily a bad thing). Started sailing off the west coast of Sweden when I was 7 years old in an Optimist Jolly and have worked my way up to bigger boats since . Designed and started building the Wandrin' Star in Canada in 1986 and sailed her to the Caribbean in 1994. Been tied to the dock in Panama for the last 7 years do to refurbishing and personal reasons. I have accumulated a bit of knowledge over 30 years on the boat, so your sailing experience is not as important as the attitude and willingness to learn and listen..
