Cruisers we met


Cruising 2008 - 2009

Last update: 13.07.2018. See also our blog.


We are Eva and Bjørn, our home is in Fornebu, outside Oslo. We have sailed together since 1989. Our offshore experience started in the new "Tatt av vinden" in 2006, the third boat we have owned. We love the cruising life.

In 2013 we sailed "Tatt av vinden" to Caribbean, and we kept it there until March 2018. We have sailed some months each year since.

In March 2018 we left the lovely Caribbean waters and transited the Panama Canal to the Pacific. Now we and "Tatt av vinden" are in the South Pacific.

We sail to see new places and meet new people.We sail carefully and slowly - what's another day at sea?

Eva retired in February 2018 from her work as head of the section for 24/7 operations in the Biomedical department in Rikshospitalet, Oslo.

Bjørn retired from his work as project leader and management  consultant in WSP, Oslo, in 2016.

Besides sailing we love hiking, bicycling, traveling, reading, meeting and talking with people.

Every day should bring some new learning. And, when we are cruising, it does.

News June 2018

There are good mooring buoys in Kauehi - by the village.

News February 2018

The mariners visas are not longer required for cruisers in Panama. That also means that if crew fly in their tourist visa will be good enough for boarding their yachts.
