Frederick Reef Archaeological Survey – Day 14

Tues, 17 Jan 2012

The conditions don’t seem to be improving, so last night we made the decision to move to West Islet on Wreck Reefs. We raised the anchor after breakfast and started our trip east.

The trip across was a bit rough, so we lost a few of the crew to their bunks for part of the day.

We arrived at West Islet at 5 pm and anchored up inside the reef at a very comfortable anchorage. 

So that’s it.  Not much else to say about the day.  Tomorrow we will start our search for the Lion, a 300 tonne American whaler which went down on 4 December 1856.
