After passing Muckle Flugga yesterday evening I, for some reason had a
sense that we were on the home straight, but in reality this isn’t true at
all. A lot can happen even in a short space of time.
It has been awesome to team up with such a good group of guys, we are
pushing so hard, but at the same time making sure we have as much fun as
possible, which makes it all the more easier to work even harder.
Last night the North Sea lived up to its notorious name providing freezing
cold water and a short, sharp sea state, it was without a doubt the wettest
night yet on board.
The biggest challenge coming up is on the navigation side, as I sit here
now looking at the long list of no go areas it almost looks like a maze to
the straits of Dover, and gas and oil platforms are appearing in front of
us, a true sign you are in the North Sea. We can’t and we won’t rest until
we cross that finish line! - Sam
