With the weather remaining thankfully calm, the sidescan sonar work continues in strips south west of the ridge. We have been lucky enough to find ourselves in the eye of a storm that we were originally expecting to hit us and continue the uncomfortably high sea state we experienced at the start of the survey.

In other news, a week in and we have now exhausted what remained on the Sky TV box, resorting to such classics as ‘Fish tank kings’, and have all become keen ornithologists seeing fulmars, kittiwakes, gannets, Manx shearwaters, black-backed gulls, and a cheeky waxwing on his last legs/wings.
We are now also preparing for a high-seas Halloween. Join us tomorrow for our next ghoulish tale!
