Sailing Naked means leaving no footprint behind. We are at the mercy of nature’s raw power and give ourselves fully to its majesty and beauty.

Sailing Naked means doing our part to reverse the current unsustainable course the world is on.

Sailing Naked means sharing a boat with friends, family and like minded people willing to join us on this journey of a lifetime.

Joscha Brörmann

The Captain

I have been sailing for 25 years. When I first got my sailing license at the age of 16, I knew that one day I would sail around the world. Which route? Through the Northwest Passage of course!

My first experience as a skipper was on the IJsselmeer. Next came numerous trips around the Baltic, Mediterranean and Caribbean with crews drawn from my circle of friends. The goal was still clear – at the age of 30 I would buy a boat and sail around the world with it. Sure enough, in 2017 a beautiful 17 year young Bavaria 42 got a new owner, captain and was renamed: Ju Mar.

Why sail through the Northwest Passage? Quite simply because it is one of the most inhospitable landscapes on the planet – it is only navigable for two months of the year. Challenge accepted! I want to face this adventure. Kitesurfing between ice floes, what a dream! Climate change will dramatically change this region in the near future. I want to sail the passage before it is too late and Greenland truly becomes a green land.

There are no more great adventures. The world is fully charted, travelled and documented. At least that’s what I thought until about two years ago when Joscha offered me the opportunity of a lifetime – to sail the Northwest Passage with him.

Admittedly, I didn’t know much about the passage at the time. In fact, as someone at home in the mountains, with limited sailing experience, fear of deep water and a strong urge to roam, spending years on a boat couldn’t be more alien to me. I said yes in a heartbeat! ‘Story of your life’ my mother would probably say.

The ocean is perhaps the last place in the world where you have virtually no contact with civilisation. You are at the mercy of the elements! No telephone, no internet, only time to focus on the essentials, the people around you and yourself. For me this is is one of the last great adventures of our time, and I am right in the middle of it.
