For those tracking our vessel: sometime in the next 10 days, you will be tracking the two to three-day sea trial of our ship the “Atlantic Tuna” (formerly BYR). The SAMSA surveys are in their final stages, and after a complete refit of the “Atlantic Tuna”, we’re now at the stage of proving the vessel’s seaworthiness. Remember, this is a sea trial so when you see the Atlantic Tuna leave the Cape Town harbor don’t jump to the conclusion we’re on our way to Bouvet just yet. If the sea trial goes as expected, we will announce our departure date on and, as well as our Twitter and Facebook pages.

You may track the Atlantic Tuna from our page:
