News from Chris Carr April 2023
Thought I’d send a quick update. I’m currently in Yangshan China, the dock photos are from here. They are fully autonomous here which is very cool. It’s fishing season in China at the moment and it’s crazy as you can see from the two ECDIS plots. The ECDIS can only handle 200 targets so what you see on the screen is not the full picture but it’s mental. All going well here. A few more ports in Asia then the slow slog over to Europe where I’ll sign off hopefully early June which will take me to 5 months on board. Hope everyone at the club is well and say hello from me in the next meeting. Chris
