About SKIRR adventures
In the summer of 1991, our Founder, Sir Robin Knox-Johnston and fellow explorer Chris Bonington, sailed to Greenland’s uninhabited southernmost tip to climb the mountains around Cape Farewell and explore the East Coast pack ice. There, Sir Robin vowed to return to the High Latitudes and Arctic Ocean to bring the exhilaration of expedition sailing to people of all walks of life. The idea of SKIRR expedition adventures was born.
Using adapted, single-mast 68-foot yachts sailing in company, crews explore, over land and water, the most isolated and rarely seen part of the globe under the power of the elements and human endeavour.
Since the outset, each mission has had one goal: to explore over land and water the most isolated and rarely seen part of the globe under the power of the elements and human endeavor.
