The first trip of Kristiina was made to Kiel, Germany . Since then she has taken Hannu all around the Baltic Sea from early May to late November. The Baltic Sea has become familiar to Hannu aboard other sailingboats as well.

Hannu has solo-sailed to Visby (Sweden) from Helsinki, and from Bergen (Norway) to Shetland and Fair Isle , and back to the Norwegian coast. He has visited every island group in the North Atlantic. In 1991, he sailed Kristiina to Spitzbergen reaching 80,01 deg. North. On this trip he also visited the Bear Island near the Russian waters.On the second trip up North in 1996, the aim was to get ashore on Greenland . but the ice blocked the way. This trip included visits to Faroe Islands . Iceland and Jan Mayen . The North has tempted Hannu at other times too. He has been skipper on several whale research trips around the Lofoten Islands in Northern Norway, e.g. on the BBC shooting trip in 1997 .

Auli has been the skipper of her own sailing boat since 1986, when she bought an Ohlson 22 named Hagar . In 1992, she bought some more length, a 26 ft Finnexpress, called Illusia . In 1998, Illusia was sold, and Auli became the first mate of Kristiina .

She has been sailing on other vessels as well. The tall ships have interested Auli, and the first tall ship trip was on the Swedish yawl Ariel . from Helsinki to Mariehamn (Еland) in 1988, as a part of Tall Ships Race. In 1992, another Tall Ships Race took her on a Dutch steel schooner Elisabeth Low from Kotka to Tallinn (Estonia) and back to Helsinki. In 1996, she crossed the Atlantic aboard Finnish schooner Helena . The route took her from Bermuda via Azores to Portsmouth, England. Turn of the year 1997-98 Auli spent sailing around the Canary Islands (Gran Canaria, Tenerife, La Palma and Gomera) on a Finnish topsail schooner Tradewind .

In summer 1998, she made a trip to the North Sea with Hannu and their friends taking the route Bergen Shetland Fair Isle Orkney Skotland the Hebrides. The boat was a Norwegian steel ketch Iolaire .

Auli has been skipper on three sailing trips outside her home waters, namely in the Mediterranean on a Jeanneau 36.2 (1997), along the South coast of Norway on a Vindш 38 (1998), and in the Caribbean on a Beneteau 505 (1999).

In addition, that our names match together, we also share the passion for sailing. We have both had our own boats, sailing our own ways, until we met each other on the same boat by coincidence. That was a meeting of two soulmates, and we realised that together we are able to fulfill something that neither of us would do alone.

This trip is more than a sailing trip for us. It is a change of life. The six square meters cabin of Kristiina will be our home. As benefit, we are going to see wonderful places, meet new people, experience things, and above all to sail. Our route is special, characterised by our interest in nature, especially in the North. Every trip has to have a challenge our first challenge will be Greenland. Our aim is to get ashore. It depends on nature, on ice.

To our knowledge this route is unique, under the Finnish flag no one has sailed these waters before.
