ObjectivesRRS James Clark Ross cruise JR206 took place from 18th January 2010 to 13th March 2010. It was joined with cruise JR248 (retrieval of oceanographic moorings from the Antarctic margin in the Weddell Sea from 22nd to 25th February) and a logistics visit to Halley. Six days were lost due to a medical evacuation near the start of the cruise which meant that some revaluation of priorities took place. Surveys of the southern South Georgia margin and the South Sandwich arc were completed in good time, but time for the Weddell Sea work was lost. Although planned, no mooring activities as there was no A frame on the ship.
