Logbook 2019

Welcome to the Online logbook & blog of S/Y Stella Polaris

We are a Finnish family of 3 sailing a Vancouver 32 sailboat. After sailing from Finland to North Africa and back in 2016-2018, we are now located in Helsinki, Finland.

The sailing season 2019 has ended and Stella Polaris is spending the winter on dry land. In the summer of 2019 we explored the Finnish archipelago and visiting some lighthouse islands.
