Narrative

Scotia sailed from Aberdeen at 1630 (all times are GMT) on Friday 15 May for the recovery of moorings in the Fair Isle Channel. Due to adverse weather conditions, crew familiarisation of the CTD crane operation, usually carried out soon after leaving port, was cancelled until better conditions.

Scotia arrived on position (59° 28.29'N 002° 01.83'W) at 0800 on Saturday 16 May. Gale force weather conditions prevented recovery of the mooring at this time. As the forecast showed no immediate improvement, the Scotia sailed for the West Shetland to allow crew familiarisation of the CTD crane operation. This was carried out at 1500. Scotia remained in this area until the weather improved.

Scotia sailed for the most northerly Fair Isle mooring position (59° 43.34'N 001° 41.48'W) at 0500 on Sunday 17 May. This mooring was recovered at 0745 and hence passage was made to the southerly Fair Isle mooring position at 0830. The southerly Fair Isle mooring was recovered on position (59° 28.29'N 002° 01.83'W) at 1100. Only the acoustic release
