Yesterday morning we left the port of Scheveningen (Den Haag)at around 11 o’clock with very good weather.

Since then we are steaming towards Ireland, with the wind in the back we can go quite fast and we expect to arrive in Galway around lunchtime tomorrow morning.

This afternoon we left the channels, so we entered the “real” oceans and experience some first waves, but the weather is still quite good and the forecast for tomorrow is

The plan is to calibrate our echosounders in the Galway Bay on arrival tomorrow after lunch. Probably we will then step on shore on Friday morning and lay in the harbor for the weekend. The survey itself will start on Monday morning some miles off the coast. At around 7 we should be able to leave the bay with the high tide.
