#256 RECYCLED. August Sandberg is a Norwegian sailor and filmmaker who is the full-time skipper of ISBJORN. He has been co-hosting the podcast and leading as an admiral on The QUARTERDECK while we have worked remotely this past year. August lives on a small island off the coast of Bergen, Norway, where he has been doing a lot of skating, skiing, and ice fishing through the winter. Andy interviewed August in February of 2019, before he had ever sailed with 59 North.
