Take to Sea: Set Off on the Arctic Sense 2021 Adventure with Andreas B. Heide

A Fascinating Marine Adventure Aboard a Sun Fast 37

For over 10 years, Andreas B. Heide, a marine biologist, has sailed from his home in Stavanger, Norway, to the Arctic ice floes aboard his Jeanneau Sun Fast 37 sailboat, named “Barba.”  

Swimming with the whales, and studying and documenting the health and well-being of the world's largest living sea mammals, are now part of his daily life. 


Jeanneau, Partner in the Arctic Sense 2021 Expedition   

Having grown up on the west coast of Norway, Andreas has felt a passion and love for the sea from the start.  

Jeanneau shares this passion for the sea, and we are very committed to the protection of the marine environment.  With shared values, it is only natural that Jeanneau has become a partner in this Arctic Sense 2021 adventure, a four-month expedition in the archipelago of the Svalbard Islands, located just 600 nautical miles south of the North Pole.
