With work complete at Bassurelle Sandbank, we dug out the passage plan and headed for Lowestoft. Both day and night shifts were feeling pretty happy with their achievements over the past few weeks. The friendly rivalry that developed between the two shifts gave that extra incentive to try and squeeze in one more grab or camera transect before the other shift took over.

During the steam back, the order of the day was data QA - checking and rechecking metadata and records from the survey so it would ready to be analysed and interpreted once we docked.
