VIDEO: SA Agulhas arrives in Crown Bay (20th January, 2013)
This stop-frame video shows SA Agulhas arriving at Crown Bay yesterday (sorry for the delay, technical issues). See the ship sail up to the ice shelf and then retreat back to moor against a tabular ice berg. The ice shelf was too high to start unloading, so it was decided that she would be better off moored further out to sea than risk becoming trapped by pack ice. We are hoping that we will be able to find a suitable off-load spot today to begin the process of getting all of the equipment onto the ice sheet.
