The equipment, ~2,400 pounds (1,090kg) on 4 pallets is on the way to New Zealand, scheduled delivery August 26th, and the Advance Team will soon begin their journey to Auckland. They’ll meet the boat at Bayswater Marina and transfer equipment from storage to the boat. On September 16th the boat sails for Noumea, New Caledonia to collect the team and will sail for Chesterfield Island on September 28th. We expect to land on Oct. 1st and begin setting up the operating camps. On August 5th the skipper reviewed and approved our dates and landing plan.
Chesterfield Island DXpedition, 2015 (OC-176)
Where's the Evohe?
Did you ever wonder if the DX-pedition boat left yet, or where is the boat now, or have they arrived at the island? We are pleased to announce that MarineTraffic.com has offered us complimentary use of their vessel tracking service. While the boat is in coastal waters its position will be reported every few minutes. When we leave the coastal area we'll report our position about every 4 hours. We're not aware of any previous DX-pedition that provided these positioning reports. The position map will be available at the opening page.
