Sven Yrvind

We often hear that our time is the time of individualism. But somehow people seemed more individualistic in the past.

Our kind of individualism is like a mass movement. It's a promoted lifestyle, and a product. Maybe that's why it's hard to come by a true individual person, like Sven Yrvind.

The Swedish small-boat sailor just left Ireland. Born in 1939, with a self-made boat, he's on his way to Florida.
