RV Celtic Explorer Newfoundland & Labrador Fishery Survey: DAY 22

Date 20/02/2011 Time: 22:00 hrs (UTC)

Position: 49 41.97 N; 50 11.43 W


Back on the survey at last! With an air temperature of 1.5 degrees and a wind speed of 5 Knots, we are having some ‘warm, calm weather’ compared to the ice filled north!  There are still some big swells as the sea recovers from the storm but on the whole, the weather is behaving a little more than it was.

A key part of a long sea voyage is the galley. The focus of the blog today is food!... the galley and mess, some of the favourite places onboard, with a fun and exciting menu, and a great pair of cooks who seem to be able to fix great meals in any kind of weather. They offer up a healthy and varied menu which is much appreciated by both crew and scientists.


The menu of dreams on the Celtic Explorer, what more could one want for a Sunday dinner!  This is also the only way many of us keep track of what day of the week it is! (Photo: Kate Barley)
