Return to Antikythera – Day 5

With all of our calibrations completed, we were looking forward to the opportunity to get out onto the wreck today.  Unfortunately, the wind came up and MV Glaros moved to a sheltered site on the SW of Antikythera last night.  We anchored up out of the wind and swell and enjoyed a beautiful day in a small cove surrounded by cliffs.  We took the opportunity to assemble our Iver AUV but discovered an issue with one of the electronics boards that will need to be replaced.

MV Poseidon joined us in the afternoon after battling through the swell and we deployed Sirius to conduct the dives planned for the wreck site to verify the encoding.
