There is not much to report from the James Clark Ross.  The final Tristan da Cunha science is due to start in just under and hour and on completion the ship will then head for Tristan da Cunha,  arriving for 08:00 on Saturday morning.  Seeing land once again will be lovely and if all goes to plan then I hope to get ashore for a few hours and enjoy being on the remotest island in the world.
