Wow! Magne Klann has published his book recounting his incredible adventure sailing the length of Norway in an RS Aero early this summer. His adventure started at the northern tip, deep inside the Arctic Circle, and ended at the southern most tip - 48 days later after 1158 nautical miles (2144 km)!

Magne lifted his RS Aero ashore and camped overnight, carrying his equipment and provisions onboard. He collecting some amazing images along the way that are included within the book. This is sure to be both an inspirational and a very thought provoking read!

Hopefully there will be an English version to follow soon. I want one!

Check out his Video Summary and Book Preview.

NORWEGIAN ADVENTURE - a catch up on the last week!
Now at Botnane, Magne is near his most westerly point of his epic voyage from the very northern tip to the very southern tip of Norway in his RS Aero.
The weather is getting warmer every day and he is almost on the home straight - only about 300nm to go!

Nice spot for the night at Botnane, north of Floro.

What a feeling sailing under epic Hornelen at 860nm. Some might choose soundtrack 'A Vestland Vestland' to go with this scene. Magne likes Satyricon 'To the mountains' better!

Yet another stunning scene - Vedvika, Vagsoy.

From the Northern to the Southern tip!
Magne Klann continues to head south past the world's most northerly city, Hammerfest, at 71' to escape the icy grip of the arctic circle! 

Magne has been doing his bit collecting plastic from one of the world's most northerly beaches and carrying it on the back of his RS Aero for 3 days sailing!;

"Adventure Sailing is very happy to be an ambassador for #cleanseas #turnthetideonplastic sailing the coast of Norway in my RS Aero. I didn’t clean the whole beach, but I did a little, and that’s a whole lot better then nothing. I also had the stuff with me for 3 days of sailing, before I found a recycle spot!"

"Waiting out heavy wind at midnight by #lopphavet.
No midnight sun yet, but only a week or two away."

ADVENTURE SAILING - Norway, at 71' north!
Magne Klann continues to head south on his most epic RS Aero adventure covering the length of Norway from the very northern tip, deep inside the Arctic Circle, to the very southern tip!
The voyage will cover more than 1000 nautical miles with Magne fishing and camping through the most remote areas - carrying his RS Aero ashore through the snow and sleeping under his sail!
He has beautiful blue skies and a good breeze today - but that is thick snow and ice on the coastline ahead!
Best wishes Magne!

Magne is out practicing and testing equipment in the snow, ready for next year's big Norwegian adventure. He is set to sail his RS Aero from Nordkapp to Lindesnes, about 1000 nautical miles from the northern to the southern tip of Norway!

We look forward to following his story and likely some incredible footage!
