Ben Tomkins

Crew

Ben is born in English and moved to Norway 4 years ago originally to pursue a career as a skydive photographer. Ben and his girlfriend bought and rebuilt an old swedish boat and have been captured by the sea ever since. In the last 2 years they have sailed from Norway all the way to the Canaries, but nothing beats the beautiful coastal sailing of Norway! His favorite part about sailing Norway is the dramatic backdrop whilst weaving through tight channels and skerries. Ben thinks the best thing about sailing is the peace and tranquility after the rush of setting the sails.

Crew

Sailing captivates Olof for its sustainability and the harmony with nature, sailing into uncharted territories powered by nature. His journey into sailing began in childhood, learning skills as a skipper in the Mediterranean before discovering the Arctic fjords. With SailNorway, he enjoys the stunning locations, adventurous guests and thrilling sailing experiences that keep him hooked. On every voyage, his father’s vintage camera (as shown in the profile picture) is a must-have, preserving memories of the journey. Starting as a dinghy sailor and now more offshore sailing, his love for exploration extends to both open seas and island-strewn landscapes, each offering its own enchantment.

Crew

Sailing fills Petter with an immense feeling of freedom and mastery, as he glide “for free” with the wind at just the perfect speed to truly savor and soak in the surrounding nature. Petter loves the life on a sailboat and being able to fix stuff on board is a skill that comes in handy for him. Meeting all the amazing and inspiring people coming from very different backgrounds and walks of life sharing the same passion for adventure (and sailing!), is what I like most about sailing with SeilNorge.

Mari Sveen

Mari Sveen

Skipper and Instructor

Meet Mari, the regatta sailor who’s head over heels in love with cruising in the North of Norway! Mari joined the SeilNorge crew after being a guest on one of their trips in 2016, but her sailing journey began when she was just 8 years old. Back then, it was all about dinghy racing. Thanks to SeilNorge, she discovered the joy of leisurely sailing in the beautiful north, and now she’s an integral part of the team. Her extensive experience in the racing community, which she’s still very much a part of, influences the trips she’s on today. It’s always a blast to sail a little faster than the others, and she’s more than happy to share her knowledge and skills with fellow sailors. Smooth sailing and high spirits are always on the horizon when Mari’s around!
