Kaiyo Maru: On our way for the second time

After staying in Melbourne for a couple of days and Kaiyo-maru being resupplied, we are on our way back to the Southern Ocean for the second half of the expedition. Although Melbourne was a welcome break, most people seem eager to continue the survey. How far south were are able to get is dependent on the extend of the sea ice. Although the sea ice extended more north that expected during the first half, it seems to have retreated with time and in the more eastern part of the survey area.
