      The MV Kelso left Cape Town on Thursday,
      10th July and arrived at Tristan da
      Cunha on Wednesday, 16th. Unfortunately,
      poor weather meant that passengers
      were not offloaded until Tuesday,
      22nd July. Offloading was completed
      by noon. Six island fishermen went
      onboard to, being the first week of
      Tristan fishing based from MV Kelso,
      which will act as factory ship whilst the
      shore-based factory is being rebuilt.
      This new practice should mean fishing
      every day as MV Kelso finds lee conditions
      whatever the weather, but catches
      on the first day were disappointing so
      two further men and their power boat
      were taken aboard the MV Kelso on 24th
      July.

        After waiting for several days for suitable fishing weather, the dong rang on Monday the 26th for the first day of the fishing season, the usual fleet of nine boats went out and landed 3.4mt between them. The top boat was Verkenner with crew Clive and Ricky landing 480kgs. The entire lobster product was turned into tails, as the pipeline that transported the water for the tanks at the factory, is still being installed after the damage from the last storm.

        Tuesday the 27th July the weather is more settled and is another fishing day, so we are expecting the catches to be higher than yesterday.

        I don't recall anyone doing anything quite like that since Jesus fed the multitudes. Most excellent.
