There are still places you can only reach by sailing. On board of Sterna, an 85-feet aluminium sailboat and under the guidance of its captain Albert Bargués and his crew, we head to the most extremes landscapes of the Norwegian Arctic, we meet its inhabitants, as well as reflecting about the the idea of home. This is the story about of all those people we met, which perhaps are conscious of something we all forgot: we are all travelling in this life. Watch the video

Sailing The Arctic, Chapter I

Just as if he was a Sterna Paradisae, the bird that gave name to the boat, he  was going to navigate 24 hours per day and 365 days in broad daylight. I felt in love with the project from the beginning. But the sentence that got me was: there are still places that one can only reach by sailing. Tintin, Stevenson, Melville, Conrad, O’Brien: all of them, rocking it in my mind through the trip. So when the boat was ready I jumped in! We were going to sail in the Norwegian Arctic.

 

The documentary “80 Latitude. Whales, dolphins and butterflies” by Goroka is coming soon.
