After a welcome speech at the end of breakfast, the Captain sounded the 'Abandon Ship' Emergency Signal. Everyone practiced the lifeboat drill which was completed sucessfully. Straight after the drill everyone was into their work and concentrating on their tasks.
At the moment they are recovering the first 3 moorings which have been in the water for 1 year. From these 3 moorings they will collect data about currents, temperature, salinity and nutrients. After the data is collected, these moorings will be fully recharged and deployed again. This process will keep everyone focussed and busy for the rest of the day.
