#125. is Janne Larsson, Swedish electrician cum-circumnavigator. This is another episode I recorded at Hallberg-Rassy’s Oppna Varv in August. Big thanks to podcast fan – and now guest of the show! – Nuno Antunes for introducing me to Janne. Janne is another dreamer, and another example of how to make dreams turn into reality. An electrician living in Helsingborg on Sweden’s southwest coast, Janne and a friend Karl made a handshake agreement one day after a wine-filled evening the night before, and agreed they’d set off together and sail around the world. Nevermind that neither of them had ever sailed before. That was just a detail. The book 'Brave or Stupid' was  born.

Thanks to Sailrite for sponsoring this episode!
