Friday August 11, 2006, at precisely 18:45 hours, VÆDDEREN, the offshore patrol frigate now temporary refitted as an expeditionary vessel, departed Copenhagen and began 8 months of circumnavigating the world as the main platform for a number of researchers, news gatheres etc.

The ship is fully equipped with modern communication systems enabling it to transmit news of natural sciense direct to clasrooms back in Denmark, as well as a number of students will be on board to make their own studies.

The 3rd Galathea Expediton is en route - after more than 6 years of inten-sive planning.

This Photo Album/Weblog will try to follow the VÆDDEREN en route, but as there was no room for this site's webmaster on board, everyone meeting the ship en route is most welcome to send pictures to this site.
