Arne and Helene Martensson have both left important banking jobs in order to take on an entirely different kind of challange - circumnavigating the world.Arne is chairman of Handelsbanken as well as on the board of some of Swedens largest companies when he and Helene decide to pursue their dream and sail around the world.

They travel west through the trade wind belt along the equator in the wake of James Cooks first expedition. They continue all the way down to the dangerous, but beautiful, Antartctic after which they sail up the coast of Chile and around the islands of Patagonia.The Yaghan is a 62-foot Hallberg-Rassy equipped with the latest in modern technology and everything else that makes a cruise around solitary waters easier.

All important functions are doubled as an extra precaution in situations when help is a long way away.Arne and Helene write about how to equip a yacht to cope with an extreme circumnavigation, criteria for weather and route analyses, fantastic scenery and, above all, about their choice to lead another kind of life.Back at the helm covers the first half of the circumnavigation.
