After the maintenance work the pump has been working beautiful. We lost one sampling point in the beginning of the week and was hoping to do some damage control later. However the weather did not work with us and the strong winds and high waves resulted in another missed sampling point. Sea Dragon was in her right element tacking in strong head winds and the crew experienced some real sailing. We set some Baltic Sea Expedition records; strongest wind, highest waves, fastest speed, number of people puking, number of pukes by a person, largest puke by a person. The crew was despite this in a good spirit during the whole week and sailing into Stockholm again was a calm and wonderful finish of leg 3.
