Starting May 2017 I sailed from the coastal border that Norway shares with Russia, with the objective to Windsurf Round Europe from Russia to Russia. I sailed solo and unsupported. An extension to the plan: revised included a final stage by bicycle with finish back in Norway.

I completed the journey in September 2019 and eventually wrote this bookthat is a more complete telling of events.

Long Standing Ambition

I solo windsurfed Britain in 2015. At the time that adventure seemed every bit as ambitious as this current project.

Long Standing Ambition is my account of that journey.
