Viking Explorers – Across the Atlantic 2018

Do you remember our partner 8 Islas? Have a look at their new adventure!
They organize a transatlantic crossing with 15 boats: Viking Explorers – Across the Atlantic 2018. They set sail today and tomorrow (7-8th of January 2018) from Gran Canaria,  heading to Barbados with a quick stop in Cape Verde. This initiative has born among friends who wanted to cross the Atlantic, but quickly new partners appeared, becoming an event made for sailors and by sailors. During their journey, they will collaborate with the project Poseidon of the University of Las Palmas, and of course, as well with Sail & Whale!
We are very excited with Viking Explorers, as they will pass through low latitude areas, where whales are known to spend winter time.. Let’s see what they find!
Wish them fair winds and following seas!!

Sail & Whale at Marina Rubicón

To celebrate our first anniversary, Sail & Whale has been at Marina Rubicón sharing the project with sailors and friends last Monday. It has been fantastic! Sharing experiences, stories, ideas, and of course, getting to know better the project. After one year of work, we are proud to share our achievements, but as well the challenges we’ve been through! And the best way to finish this meeting… with chocolate cake!!!

Several sailors have joined us, some of them sailing in family for some months, some wintering in the Canaries, some with several Atlantic crossings, and good friends like Ocean Conservation! … wide public, different perspectives, and one common feeling! Ocean Conservation is a must!

It has been a real pleasure to spend the afternoon surrounded by great people like you!










Sail & Whale with the Atlas of Mammals of…

Some of the cetacean sightings received this year by Sail & Whale were recorded in the Portuguese seas. We have been collaborating actively to publish the first edition of the Atlas of Mammals of Portugal, where occurrence maps have been done all over the Portuguese Economic Exclusive Zone with the contribution of several institutions, organizations and researchers.

So once again, a big THANKS to all the partners and observers who have joined somehow the project. We are so proud of you!!

This first edition is free available on-line. So have a look and enjoy!



Sail & Whale again on the radio!

During our stay in Almería last September, while assisting to the Congress on Biodiversity and Conservation, we have the opportunity to participate in two different radio programs with Radio Universidad and Candil Radio. A great chance to divulgate Sail & Whale, especially among the university community. We’ve talked about the main goals of the project and first achievements and results.

Every single drop helps!
