We’ve now been at sea for two days now, and making good progress as we head towards Macquarie Island. It’s a very short transit compared to the Antarctic continent stations – leaving Hobart we get to Macca in under three days. We make the best use of this time conducting briefings, finalising plans, and preparing equipment as resupply will kick off tomorrow.
With a short transit this means there hasn’t been too much downtime. We did play boardgames tonight after dinner which was good fun.
Assuming we’re on time, we should arrive in sight of Macquarie Island around 09:00 tomorrow, and drop anchor at Buckles Bay at 10:00.
Looking forward to a busy and productive resupply.
