RV Celtic Explorer - Newfoundland Mission: DAY SEVEN

Date: 06-Feb-2011
Time: 20:00UTC
Position: St Johns Newfoundland 

We have landed!

The crew had a busy day in preparation for our arrival into St Johns.  The guys on board got their best suits out.

 The crew spent the morning working through the snow giving the boat a final clean in preparation for landing.

We carried out a CTD at the entrance to St Johns and all went well.
At 15:00 our pilot boat arrived

It’s been a tough crossing and credit must be given to all the crew for making a safe passage across the North Atlantic and to the cooks for keeping us fed during the tough conditions. 

I think we will be heading up the town for a well earned wander tonight!
