On-board Diary: Heading for Tallinn

Date: May 16, 2011



Today we are spending the day sailing towards Tallinn, where we will make a stopover from this evening until tomorrow. Though having at tight time schedule, we made a stop close to an island called Osmussaar in Estonia to do underwater filming, taking a sample from the seafloor and measure the oxygen in the water column. There was no visible life at 110 meters depth, no either in the sediment sample, which again tell us about the critical situation the Baltic Sea is in.

When we arrive in Tallinn tonight we will look forward to go for a walk – a thing you miss to do while living on a boat.
