Welcome to the JIOQ section of the site!

These pages are loaded with information about Jocara Indian Ocean Quest, a 13 month long sailing voyage around the Indian Ocean packed with adventures and discoveries. In this section you can find information about the places we visited, the marine research we did, local projects and educational exchanges.

There is also a journal (which we call chatty log) with images of our daily lives during the trip. Click on Chatty log and you'll find a table with links to the various logs and projects. And there's an archive of Newsletters that we sent out by email over HF radio from the boat every 7-10 days.

From paradise to hell! First our engine seizes on the way to Gan. Then after recovering we get dismasted by a squall. Then it's a long struggle to get a temporary mast build in Malé. It's all in the logs + a personal account of the dismasting by Casper
