I'm Nils Norin, the owner of Ventus (my Elan 210), and the person behind this webpage. I began sailing dinghies in my teens, starting with Optimist and continued in to Europe dinghy. I did compete on regional level but I was nere that good. I also sailed on Swedish Cruising Association school ships a few times. In late teens other things took my focus away from sailing and it took almost 20 years before I found my way back to sailing. I bought an old Swedish built boat, a Safir built in the beginning of the 1980s. In 2019 I bought my Elan 210 as I wanted a trailerable boat so I could explore more waters, and get some more playful sailing.

When not sailing I'm also a Skydiver since over 20 years, I'm active IPSC pistol shooter, has been a volunteer as SAR boat crew in SSRS (Swedish Sea Rescue Society) but has taken a brake from that right now. I'm aslo a HAM radio operator (SM3UQK, SE3A and OX/SE3A).

Professionally I'm a helicopter pilot flying in Greenland for Air Greenland. I used to fly AS350B3+ helicopters but since beginning 2024 I'm flying the medium twin engine EC155 helicopter.
