Australia Day on board RV Investigator

The scientists, support staff and crew on board RV Investigator were hunkering down yesterday with wind speeds up to 50 knots preventing them from deploying equipment.

Instead they tucked into a lunch of oysters, prawns and other delicious things, like lamingtons, and tuned into Triple J’s Hottest 100, to celebrate Australia Day.
