The British Arctic Expedition, 1925-1926 (led by Worsley) sailed along the west coast of Spitsbergen. Worsley shared command with Grettir Algarsson. They had originally planned an expedition involving an Arctic flight to the North Pole but this did not eventuate.

The expedition searched for Gillis Land, which had been sited in 1707 as being between Spitsbergen and Zemlya Frantsa-Iosifa (Franz Joseph Land). The expedition ship Lady of Avenel was renamed Island. She sailed to Frantsa-Iosifa where Worsley and fellow expedition member Gordon Burt claimed to be the first New Zealanders to reach so far north.

Frank Arthur Worsley (born 1872 in Akaroa – died 1943) was a New Zealand sailor and explorer who served on Ernest Shackleton's Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition of 1914–1916, as captain of the Endurance. He also served in the Royal Navy Reserve during the First World War. He was one of the four men who sailed the James Caird from Elephant Island to South Georgia in 1917.
