The End

BY: Silvia García



Last day of the campaign, whether we like it or not. I tried to arrange to stay another month, but they tell me that it’s impossible. They have no heart! Thirty dives, with Carlos and Enrique carrying the cameras, Juan as chief diver I, Aaron as chief diver II, and Cris, the cook who became a diver (or was it the other way round?). One hundred and twelve ROV dives (that’s right, 112!) with Albert at the controls of the ROV and David his ROV copilot (congratulations to the ROV team, right David?) and 60 samples of different specimens. All of it information that will be thoroughly processed to achieve a literally profound understanding of marine life in Malta. Seamanship without fear of hard work: Marta, Kike, Alex, Aaron and Juan. Rubén and Pere, first officer and captain, managing this troop without trepidation, which is no small feat. I’d also like to thank our colleagues Leyla and Julian from the department of biology at the University of Malta. And, of course, not forgetting the coolest catamaran in the Mediterranean – the Ranger – to this superb team, well, we could hardly expect anything other than a fantastic campaign!
