Eric Bretscher is a man of vision… in his eyes, small is beautiful.
The 13-metre alloy sloop Nordkyn is the outcome a personal design and build project.
Eric Bretscher was seeking the ability to sail to high latitude destinations in a small, inexpensive, but tough yacht with good performance and low costs.
He achieved his dream, setting out alone on board the sloop ‘Yarra’ for 7 years, covering some 55,000NM between latitudes north of the Arctic Circle to the Antarctic, including many mythical locations such as Iceland, Patagonia, Easter Island, the fog-bound Aleutian Islands, Alaska, Tasmania and many more with a sextant, depth sounder, speed log and a stack of paper documents.
