In Memoriam Hörður Sigurbjarnarson: Honouring our beloved Captain
It is with heavy hearts that we share the news of the sudden passing of our beloved colleague and friend, Hörður Sigurbjarnarson, founder of North Sailing.
Hörður was the heart and soul of our company and a passionate advocate for nature and marine conservation. His enthusiasm for craftsmanship, expeditions, preserving our national heritage, and supporting coastal and maritime culture was truly inspiring. His vision and commitment to sustainable tourism and environmental protection were an inspiration to us all. Hörður had a sparkle in his eyes for the ocean that will be greatly missed by many.
We, the North Sailing family, bear the great responsibility of carrying forward his remarkable legacy.
Hörður understood better than most that successful tourism thrives in harmony with nature. He shared his profound love and knowledge of the ocean with countless individuals who embarked on our whale watching tours and expeditions. We kindly invite all of you to share your cherished memories of Hörður with us. Whether it’s a special encounter during a whale watching tour, a personal story, or a treasured moment, we would be honoured to hear and celebrate the memories that Hörður created with you.
As we navigate through this difficult time, we extend our deepest condolences to Hörður’s family and friends. Our thoughts are with you.
Thank you all for your continued support.
Rest in adventure, our beloved Hörður.
North Sailing team.
