JCR Arctic Final Update

This is the final update from the James Clark Ross from the JR288 Arctic cruise.

The science is now almost complete and the ship is on passage to Dundee,  from where the scientists and their equipment will be discharged.  From Dundee the ship will then proceed to Denmark for the annual refit,  before heading for Immingham towards the end of September to load the cargo for the 2013/14 Antarctic season.

Whilst on passage from the Arctic the ship was overflown by the Norwegian Coastguard and were asked to send some pictures,  which they kindly did.
