    Asta- you are crazy. Glad you found something new to keep you interested. Japan sounds like a unique country. Going there someday.
  3. s/v Beth
    Thanks Asta. Will be coming in August. Do you live in PR? Would like to have you and your so over for dinner.
  4. s/v Beth
    Asta, this is newt. I had to change my name to s/v Beth after getting some threats on from testamony I gave in trial. I don't blame you for being careful. I just need to know the best way to Hiada Gweii. I am coming from Port Hardy.

    Hi Asta! How is the icelandic noble hidden in BC doing? I asked a question about getting up to Hiada Gwaii but you didn't bite, so I thought I would ask you directly...Do you know the way to Hyda Gwaa? da da da da da... (sung to do you know the way to San Jose).
    I never see you anymore girl, do the mooses and kitties really need all you attention?
    Newt, aka s/v Beth.

    I'm in Seattle and fly out of Boeing Field. I fly commercially doing flight instruction, tours etc..I just happened across this site/forum from an interest in sailng again. I sailed quite a bit years ago, but got away from it and just never went back.....till now. Part of my interest is a new found freedom I have and the itch to explore the world a little. Not sure exactly what that means yet, but crewing on something seems interesting as a way back into it....

    We share an interest in aviation. All be it in two different forms. I'm rotor and your fixed, fixed on floats at least....

About Me

  • About Astrid
    Vessel Make/ model
    50-ft steel Ketch
    Vessel Name
    Seagull (Męva)
    Northern British Columbia, part of the time in Prince Rupert and part of the time on Moresby Island.
    veterinary surgeon (DVM)
    sailing, flying, and forn sišr (the old way), fencing, target shooting and hunting (expert long range rifle shot), archery, and otherwise arcane practices such as celestial navigation.
    I am of Icelandic heritage and share my boat with Lynn and a cat named Hayden. Hayden likes to sail with me but is not too keen on flying with me; Lynn on the other hand likes sailing with me and flying with me. I grew up around boats (my brothers fishing trawler and my father's sailboat). I helped crew the sailboat when my father, brother and I sailed it from Iceland to British Columbia. In high school, I was an RC Sea Cadet, four years in college and five years in the Maritime Command (now RCN). Following that, I got a degree DVM at CSU in Colorado.
