We have come full circle in our sampling endeavors. If you remember we started the trip a day late due to an emergency tooth extraction, and we arrived home a day late due to an emergency medical evacuation that diverted us to the Chatham Islands. Our chief engineer got hydrofluorocarbon poisoning while working on one of the engine cooling systems. Thankfully, he is doing fine and even came to meet us in Wellington when we docked.

As for sampling, it was very successful, except for the minor set back with the McLane pumps, almost all samples that were planned to be collected were collected. We retuned to shore with approximately 1432 liters of seawater and 5963 filters for analysis.

It was a wonderful group of people to work with and the weather was mostly in our favor. Overall, it was a successful and productive time at sea.
