      Neat Helleholm, and thank you.

      Where did the lat/long data come from?

      Are you on board?

      If so, then stay away from pirates and enjoy the warm weather while it lasts. Northern hemisphere will be a bit chillier by the time Finnmarken gets here.

          She's nearly there! AIS changed again - to 1200 today. Can think of far worse places to spend New Year's Day!
          Cheers,

            She is indeed close to Durban already, with ETA 1200 hrs. UTC.

            Sorry about the wrong ETA above. My computer is still tuned to S'pore time, hence the ETA was "translated" to that time.

                  Well spotted Carina. She looks brand new again in those photos. Still a long way from home though.

                      Lots of stuff seems to have been removed.
                      I like the new satellite globe arrangement better than the old one, but I'm curious if she'll get completely new domes like several of the other HRG ships have already have received.
                      Durban, could it have been a bunker & crew change stop or?

                          They are now due in Cape Town for crew change as planned.

                            Finnmarken has rounded Cape Angulhas a couple of hours ago.
                            Present speed 12.2 kts., which should put her in Cape Town tomorrow morning.
