Patience is rewarded
This morning we were ready to land ashore and offload all our cargo. Thwarted by ice which had pushed into the bay overnight, the Captain made the decision to reposition the ship and hold off until the currents, tide and wind moved the ice. Sure enough, leads opened up in the afternoon. A sterling effort by the Royal Navy and the Marines ensured that the team and all our stores were safely installed ashore.
