This week at the station
This week at Macquarie Island: 15 March 2013
Refuelling, resupply and handover
This week was exceptionally busy as the Aurora Australis was in port and at Macca for resupply. We transferred fuel for the station from the ship and then resupplied the field huts by helicopter.
Everything this year went according to plan and handover on Saturday night went smoothly with Narelle handing over to Mark, the new station leader.
When the ship left, the winter team retired to the mess for coffee and cake and are now well into their winter programs.
We are now on our own until November.
