Two Swedish Sailors Witnessed The Birth Of A New Island While Out In The Pacific Ocean

In the middle of the Pacific Ocean, two sailors are enjoying the trip of a lifetime. Suddenly, a mass of rock appears to rear up from nowhere, threatening to run their yacht aground. However, it isn’t land that they’ve discovered; it’s the first sign of an incredible phenomenon that they’ll remember for the rest of their lives.

Swedish sailor Frederik Fransson had been living in San Francisco, California, for almost a decade when he decided that he was ready for a change. After quitting his job, then, he persuaded his uncle, Håkan, to join him on an epic 6,000-nautical-mile journey across the Pacific Ocean.
