Sven Yrvind may be a madman, but he's not crazy. He has a great sailing resume. His adventures have taken him across several oceans, often solo. His was the first yacht to land at the remote South Atlantic island Tristan da Cunha, and he set a record rounding Cape Horn on a 20-footer in winter. In 1980, under the name Sven Lundin, he was awarded the Royal Cruising Club medal for seamanship.
At an expected average boat speed of 2.5 knots Sven hopes Bris will reach Madeira in less than 30 days.
