Stephan J.W. Platzer

Stephan, a retired chemist, began his sailing adventures on a Sunfish. Since that time, he has journeyed on larger vessels, including a Viking replica ship from Norway to England; a yacht surrounded by icebergs in the Greenland Sea; the 1890s Schooner Ernestina from Cape Verde to Newport, Rhode Island; and a steel-hulled sailing ship around Cape Horn during the winter, traveling from east to west against the wind and currents.
