Our South Georgia season is coming to an end now. Yesterday we hauled the last line and started steaming for Port Stanley. With reasonable weather conditions we should be docking on about the 31st Aug, right now we have 45kts NE, not so comfortable for steaming. It’s a good feeling to finally be on the way home, but the work isn’t over yet, now we have the big clean up. During the trip the processing factory is cleaned regularly and kept up to standard for our fish pack house license. But now, everything to do with the fishing operation is dismantled, checked, repaired if necessary and then put back together and made ready for the next fishing operation, whenever that may be.
From now on, it’s the long haul back to NZ from ½ way around the world.
