The Ocean science on tall ships initiative was a joint collaboration between the Future Ship project (http://www.fsp21.com), the jubilee sailing trust (http://www.jst.org.uk) and the Challenger society (http://www.challenger-society.org.uk) and aimed to put science onto Tall ships. This had never been tried before so created a very exciting opportunity. The aim for the cruise, around the Canaries during January 2008 (21st -28th), was to encourage a team of multi disciplinary marine scientists (e.g. physical oceanographers, phytoplankton, zooplankton, microbial ecology and higher predator researchers) to work together to conduct high quality scientific research from a tall ship (Lord Nelson).
