On-board Diary: Mahon
Author: Ricardo Aguilar
Date: September 30, 2006
We will make our last stop in port to load supplies and rest a little, before finishing this year's campaign. At night, we have been carrying out bathymetric measurements of the Cañon de Menorca canyon, where we will be working during the next few days. The profile given by the computer looks very promising. From a platform of 80-90 meters, a pronounced drop begins and reaches over 1,000 meters depth. If the currents and the sea remain calm, the dives here will prove to be very interesting.
At sunrise, we enter the port of Mahon. We will refuel and then find a slip. We will dedicate the day to buying food and cleaning supplies that we need, and preparing for the next few days.
