Underway to the survey sites

We departed the Port of Durban on Feb 21st at 1:21 pm local time. The pilot disembarked and we then proceeded to head south to our first waypoint at about 11 kts. We will not be collecting any data until the ship enters international waters, which will be in a day and half. When we get to international waters, we will turn on the ship’s sonar and swath bathymetry mapping system and also deploy the magnetometer to measure the magnetic field. The first survey line we will collect will be for our South African colleagues.
