Tara, a 36m expedition sailing schooner, is currently sailing the globe on a mission to save our oceans. Journalist Tom Isitt tells us about the important evironment work this determined boat and her crew are conducting.

At a time when our planet faces ever-increasing environmental threats, and climate-change-deniers are put in charge of the US Environmental Protection Agency, the work to protect our oceans is becoming more important than ever before. And the superyacht world is doing its best to reduce its impact on the environment, working on more environmentally-friendly production processes, looking at ways of reducing fuel-consumption and waste, trying to lessen our negative impact on the oceans we hold so dear.

But there is one yacht that has gone further than most others, literally as well as figuratively. Tara is a 36 metre, aluminium-hulled schooner that is used as a research vessel by the Tara Expeditions Foundation. And she is not your typical research vessel. Most are 40m+ expedition-style motoryachts that offer a broad, stable platform from which to conduct their research. But these types of yacht have their own issues with the environment, often burning large amounts of fuel as they travel the globe. A sailing yacht may not be as beamy or as stable, but it will be a more eco-friendly vessel.

Tara Expeditions Foundation is a French organisation dedicated to protecting the world’s oceans through scientific research. It was established in 2003 by Agnès Troublé, founder and inspiration for the agnès b. fashion brand (and her son Étienne Bourgois), to celebrate their love of the sea and their desire to see mankind live in harmony with our oceans.
