ETA is only a couple hours away now!

View from the bridge–looking for Heard Island


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.
