|Wandering Albatross is a 43' steel cutter designed for blue–water sailing and high–latitude adventures.
Her owners, Gary and Kirstin, have made the sea their home for over 15 years and are committed to preserving the extraordinary natural beauty of the world's oceans.
Norway and Iceland continue to hunt whales in the North Atlantic while Japan targets species in the Southern Ocean.
In May 2006 we set out to sail from the
Arctic to the Antarctic,
a 14,000 mile voyage undertaken in aid of
Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society
Each year 100 000 albatrosses are drowned as bycatch on longline fishing hooks - that's one every 5 minutes.
We are now sailing across the South Atlantic, visiting the Falkland Islands and South Georgia, two important breeding sites for albatrosses.
Through this voyage we aim to raise awareness about the Save the Albatross Campaign,
an international effort to save these magnificent seabirds before it is too late.
