Ocean Warrior Expeditions
Imagine stepping aboard
As you prepare to step aboard the Ocean Warrior #Resolute Expeditions, you’ll be embarking on more than just a sailing journey; it’s an insightful expedition into the North Atlantic’s intricate ecosystem. You’ll take on the role of a citizen scientist, eagerly contributing to data collection and gaining an understanding of the research’s critical goals.
You’ll experience a deep connection with nature. The vast sea, the ice and open sky will offer you a close connection with the elements. The camaraderie among the crew, all sharing a common purpose, is something that will last long after the expedition has finished. The shared mission is bound to forge strong friendships and experiences you will remember for the rest of your life.
Jim has been planning this scientific expedition for many years. It’s been trialled and found to be a great success.
Add in the experienced guidance of Jim McNeill, this expedition isn’t just about sailing; it’s a fusion of adventure and scientific discovery. Aboard the Linden, a traditional schooner, you’ll be actively involved in significant climate and ocean research, making your journey both enjoyable and highly rewarding.
The fine ship Linden is currently in her regular winter maintenance in Denmark getting all spruced up for the 2024 sailing season.
Praise the Linden
I couldn’t praise the Linden crew highly enough, extremely professional, friendly and encouraged us to be part of the team. I’d sail on that boat with that crew anywhere. The experience was at times spiritual, life affirming. I can’t recommend the experience highly enoughAndy M – Ocean Warrior #Foundation Expedition, 2023
Make your adventure come true!
Are you Prepared?
Nobody should undertake this expedition that hasn’t given it a lot of thought and learnt as much as they reasonably can beforehand. We understand that individual circumstances will affect this along with the knowledge and skills you already have. This is a big part of what makes it so exciting, learning from each other and seeing your new found knowledge in action all around you.
Adam’s Recommendation – The Blue Machine
I seriously recommend this book, it’s easy to read with lots of little stories that amuse and educate you on the importance of the Oceans. You’ll quickly discover why the waters around Greenland are so important to the whole global weather patterns, CO2 levels, and deep ocean currents.
I’m lucky to have been in many of the places mentioned in the book and can see just how significant all the pieces are when you add them together. The teaming fish off the coast of Chile and Peru, the Antarctic Convergence Zone which is partly a result of the deep Atlantic Ocean Current that starts thousands of mile away in the waters between Greenland and Iceland.
If you find the book interesting, just imagine hope much more it will come home to you actually working on aspects of the Ocean in these critical waters.
