Monday 13 November 2000
Onboard programs continue and are extended with kelp observations being made.
Firming up our arrival in Fremantle - Saturday 18 November at the pilot at 0700, alongside at about 0800.
Gordon got the expeditioners together to return some of their Antarctic clothing. Our arrival in Australia is getting close now. Two more sleeps, or four for those who find time for an afternoon nap, or six for those who find time for a morning nap as well.
The Heard Islanders had an open-deck cocktail party on the helicopter deck this afternoon, and we managed to cram about 20 people into one of the water-tank huts which are designed to sleep 5.
We had a farewell BBQ on the trawl deck this evening – a good way to end an expedition but a little sad that good friends will be leaving.
From Suzanne, Voyage Leader: "This is the last Sitrep for the First Voyage of Aurora for 2000-2001. We’ve had a great voyage - been everywhere, done everything, worked and played hard so thanks to the Captain and Ships Crew and to the Expeditioners - Round Trip, Davis, Mawson and Heard Island for their assistance and good company. A special Thank You to Gordon for his support as Deputy during the Voyage."
And from Gordon: "A special thank you to Berkley and OzGold who kept me in tune with what journeys should always be like – full of inquiry and insatiable curiosity."
