This one is for the Captain and Crew!

We wanted to introduce the captain and the crew on the R/V Sally Ride earlier, but what better time than after that remarkably executed rescue  (see A Rescue in the Equatorial Pacific, posted on May 1st). A big shout-out to the skilled men and women who – when not responding to vessels in distress – make scientific data and sample collection possible on a daily basis! And they do it all with such good cheer and professionalism.  Photos of most are shown below (Ian, Daris, Aaron, Jeff and Travis are not in the photos, but a special thank you to them as well!)
