Season 3, releasing Thursday Sept. 26, 2019 features the story of the SV Delos & 59 North crew’s adventures in the High Arctic. The audio is adapted from the book by the same name that we produced following the summer in the Arctic in 2018 aboard ISBJORN. This season picks up in May, when we sail ISBJORN across the Arctic Circle, and traces our route NORTH, NORTH, NORTH!, all the way to Spitsbergen. The SV Delos crew joins us in Longyearbyen and for the next 3 weeks we adventure with polar bears, glaciers, walrus and 1º C swimming! The season wraps up with the 1,000-mile passage south to ICELAND, where we pass the Arctic Circle again, this time going south.

You can buy a copy of the book and follow along with the story! We released the second edition on 59-north.com/80north, a high-quality, softcover version of the limited-edition hardbound book we made last year, filled with epic photos from 59 North, Ship’s Photographer James Austrums, and the SV Delos crew.

We put a TON of effort into producing these seasons and love what we do, but we need your support to keep it going. Please donate below, or go to 59-north.com/80north and buy a copy of the book! Enjoy and…

Season Two features the exciting release, for the first time in English, of Yves Gélinas' book Jean-du-Sud & the Magick Byrd, the story of his solo, non-stop circumnavigation via the Great Capes in his beloved Alberg 30. The book was only ever published in French, so we'll be simultaneously released the English book in print and in our unique, serialized audio format through the podcast. Yves himself will be narrating the book in his charming and friendly style. Yves is also inventor of the Cape Horn windvane, which Andy & Mia used on Arcturus to cross the Atlantic to Sweden.

You can meet Yves (& Andy!) at the January 2018 Toronto International Boat Show! Come and hear Yves speak and buy a signed copy of his book!

Season one features the audio rendition of 'Brave or Stupid,' a story about Janne Larsson & Kalle Andersson, two unassuming Swedes, who on a handshake agreement over a bottle of wine, decided to sail around the world together. Nevermind that neither had ever set foot on a sailboat before...
