The radar showing the track of the vessel, about 20 miles distant. Weather is foggy so we could not see McDonald Island as we passed it. Many seabirds. Sea about 1-2m. Comfortable ride. Current time 1400 local (Heard Island).  Expect to be  in Atlas cove in about 2 h.

    I don’t know which is more exciting… tracking them or making contact with them once they get there! It has been a thrill watching their progress over the past 12 days. Thanks of course to the entire team for going on and sharing such a great adventure. Thanks Rich for the work you do bringing the action to us via this site.
