The Bear Is In The Igloo

Hey All!

This afternoon, Collin took his ship out of George Town, Ascension Island and carried out a successful recovery of RU29: Challenger!

He sailed out about 25 nm to where he found Challenger drifting at the surface, covered in the eggs of Flying Fish

Now back on shore, Challenger will remain on station until Nov 4th when Chip Chuck and Scott will arrive on the island to replace the batteries, make the necessary repairs and redeploy.  From there she will continue on to Brazil to complete her crossing of the south Atlantic
