Born in 1957, sailor, mountaineer, climber, and all-round adventurer.
Getting to know distant countries and cultures is his motivation, a ship is an ideal medium. You have everything you need in just one place.
In 1985 he bought the 14-meter steel ship SANTA MARIA, and with it he sailed the Mediterranean Sea then across the Atlantic to the Caribbean, always following the sun.
At the end of the 80s, Wolf started to get a bit restless. But he knew that, far in the south, new challenges were awaiting. Cape Horn and the Antarctic, a large and empty adventure playground made from ice and rocks. It was an immeasurable invitation to discover, explore, and conquer. Here he finds his world.
In 1991 the Venezuelan-born Jeannete came on board.
Together in 1995, they began pioneering, discovering the adventurous waters and mountains of Tierra del Fuego around Cape Horn and the Antarctic.
In 2011 Wolf managed to circumnavigate the American continent completely. Within a year he rounded Cape Horn and sailed the infamous Northwest Passage, something that nobody succeeded in doing before.
Today, Wolf Kloss is still sailing the world’s oceans as a skipper on both the SANTA MARIA AUSTRALIS and the SANTA MARIA.
