#YOUEXPLORE 1 and #YOUEXPLORE 2 are two arctic classed sailing ships. The #YOUEXPLORE crew will insure the safe operation of ship and equipment – but participants will be expected to participate in all aspects of the operations. #YOUEXPLORE is not a cruise – it is however an inclusive opportunity to learn everything between navigation and sailing, operations planning and execution, data sampling and research, arctic outdoors life and much more. #YOUEXPLORE offers a range of different opportunities, depending on the season, in order to optimize our outreach in the northern environment. Whenever the #YOUEXPLORE ships are in operation they will be collecting scientific data en-route. This data is made available to scientific research institutions to increase our knowledge of environmental impacts in the north – participating explorers participate in these activities
