Artic Expedition Barba Uses Ullman Sails For Extreme Expedition

Barba will set out on her greatest expedition to date on June 20, 2015, sailing from Stavanger in Southern Norway to the Arctic island of Svalbard and subsequently attempting to circumnavigate the archipelago, if ice conditions permit.
