Emma Garschagen is the full-time mate on ICEBEAR, taking Mia's place on the boat since Axel was born. She's a lifelong sailor who grew up on the Hudson River and at age 19 got her first boat, a 24-foot C&C where her love for adventure sailing truly began. Since then she's gone on to sail aboard a variety of boats from tall ships to schooners and most recently her dad's 40-footer which she took offshore to St. Maarten last fall. Emma & I sat down in ICEBEAR's cabin in Antigua last week to debrief our passage south, talk about how she wound up on the team and hear her dreams for the future!
