Happy Mother’s Day

Well its a gorgeous (but a little windy) Mother’s day here in Punta Arenas aboard the Palmer. The ship is very busy as scientists and crew are all running around attempting to set up labs and prepare the ship for sailing on Monday.



Along with getting ready everyone was able to set up there cabins after our cabin assignments were given out.


Last night some of the science party was able to enjoy a nice dinner at a restaurant called Remezon.


And of course  from everyone here  on the Palmer  to all the moms out there,

    Hey landlubbers following our intrepid antarctic explorers,
    Here are a couple of helpful links for tracking the voyage.
    This site has a more useful and pleasing map interface for ship tracking (link should directly to the RV NB Palmer) : http://tinyurl.com/bq2pnlj

    Also, they have a link so that you can view ship positions in Google Earth, which is a cool way to view the planet:

    I for one will enjoy sitting on my lawn in shorts and t-shirt while watching my friends sailing through the icy southern ocean!

    The Marine Traffic tracker isn’t showing your positions anymore. Here is the direct sailwx.info link http://www.sailwx.info/shiptrack/shipposition.phtml?call=WBP3210

    • Thanks for the heads up! Our bandwidth is pretty tough, to catching this stuff is a little tricky for us. Much appreciated! We’ll update back to the sailwx shiptracker.
