RV Celtic Explorer Newfoundland & Labrador Fishery Survey: DAY 25

Date 23/02/2011 Time: 21:30 hrs (UTC)

Position:  51 53.80 N 51 03.07 W

Wind 30 Knots

The weather has turned on us once again, with 4-6 metre waves.  We managed to get some survey work in this morning before the wave height began to rise, however this evening will certainly be a sleepless one for many of us as we try to stay in our bunks!

There were some great sights to be had from various lookouts along the Celtic Explorer, watching the seabirds playing amongst the sea spray.

Down below the cabins became reminiscent of being inside a washing machine at times throughout the day.

The seabirds seemed to be really enjoying it and it was a really nice sight

Onwards we go and hope the night will become a little calmer, who knows, out here on the seas anything can happen!

Until next time….
