THE SHIP

Come aboard La Louise!

 

La Louise is a sailing boat specially designed to sail in the polar regions.

 

She was designed and built by her skipper Thierry Dubois who has been sailing her around the Arctic since 2011.

 

A real scientific laboratory will be fitted out on board for the needs of the expedition in order to collect and store the samples required for the various research projects.

 

This is a new form of commitment for our captain: after his early ocean racing career (Mini-transat, Route du Rhum, Vendée Globe) he is setting sail again for this research and scientific mediation adventure.

 

This boat in which we will live for 6 months was entirely designed by its captain who spent 6 years building it: an adventure to be relived!
