Trip South Round 2

Sophie “Süpi” Vallas, 3rd Assistant Scientist


This is my second consecutive year doing the trip south and oh how different those two trips have been. This year, like last year, started a little later than planned and this year, like last year, we stopped in at the Sakonnet River, but this year, unlike last year, I am sailing for the first time as third assistant scientist!
