Today was a monumental day for the R/V Point Sur and it’s crew.
The past months have delivered a series of challenges and achievements at various stages of this epic journey. As the lines of the Sur were dropped for the last time at Palmer Station in 2013, our greatest success to date has been realized. The entire voyage is far from over. However, the entire crew of the Point Sur is able to celebrate a bit after the completion of our support of scientific operations around the Western Antarctic Peninsula.
Now, back to Moss Landing….after some more science along the way!
And, yes…..that is a replica of the R/V Point Sur on the sign….thanks Scott!
Many, many heartfelt thanks to the entire cast of characters at Palmer Station. A stellar community exists at Palmer Station and our trip was only possible because of their presence and support. It was a busy day as we departed but we managed to get a chance to say thank you and goodbye to our new found friends.
