Writer, sailor, founder
Øyvind Bordal, who got the idea and did this thing, is norwegian. He is born 1967, and have lived and worked out of Denmark since 1992. Studied psychology, history and pedagogy on the universities of Oslo and Copenhagen. Ended up a dropout on all three occasions, must have been other things that felt more important. Mostly sailing and writing - two areas where one could say, that the real life education actually happened.
Have raced sailing boats on an international level, worked as a coach, and later writer/photographer for boat magazines. Messing with boats have always been a main thing, and still is, together with writing and the media production, that's described elsewhere on this site.
