- 1500 QSO’s have been logged as ZL/ZS9HI/MM
- Argo Buoy’s are being deployed – the team will call me today so I can share the numbers for tracking
- They have had relatively calm seas, but sometimes need to hold on. All are doing well
If you look at todays Windyty.com charts – its very interesting to see how fast the weather changes and in such a large area. Todays chart looks pretty awesome – you can trace a path where the prevailing wind is surely heading not only towards Heard Island – but even away from Heard Island and Perth. This isn’t to say that there aren’t rough spots – but it sure does show how well the Skippers and Crew of the Braveheart know their business. I’ve received an outpouring of praise for one of modern DXpeditioning’s most valuable forms of transport (especially to Polar Entities) – the ship and Crew of the Braveheart.

I’m thrilled they are with such a great crew. Thanks for the update that all is going well. Are they on track to reach HI on the 21st?
Yes – they should arrive on the 21st mainly due to the fact that they left Cape Town late in the day.
