The current plan is for the JCR to arrive in Southampton on Wednesday 21st June. During our stay all the Antarctic cargo will be discharged and then the ship will mobilise for the Arctic cruise, departing on the afternoon of the 30th June.
With our arrival in Southampton now only a few days away all on board are looking forward to the chance to get ashore and stretch legs a bit further than we can just now. Port calls are often hectic periods with lots of tasks needing to be carried out, ranging from maintenance of equipment that can't be done whilst the ship is at sea, to storing up for the next voyage, getting laundry ashore and back again to the discharge of cargo and mobilising for the next cruise.
The Ship will be moving into Grid In later this evening and HF conditions have been fairly good. My WSPR receiver on 30m is getting lots of stations as we move closer to Europe.
