  • Update from not-so-down south

    Blogpost by nicole - January 29, 2006 at 11:59 3 comments

    We're almost back to Cape Town, almost back to land.  We're maybe 800 miles south of the southern tip of Africa, making roughly 10 knots an hour in remarkably easy seas so far: we've had the good fortune of transiting across a high pressure zone.  We'... Read more >

  • Leaving Antarctica be

    Blogpost by nicole - January 23, 2006 at 12:14 3 comments

    Well, the time has come to leave the whaling grounds and head homeward. We left the Nisshin Maru and her hunters a few days ago and headed south into the ice towards Antarctica, the white continent, to take in the wonders of the waters and the seasca... Read more >

  • Keeping them moving on

    Blogpost by nicole - January 19, 2006 at 15:29 4 comments

    For the past several days, since the African Queen had the harpoon fired over her and the rope came down into the boat, the fleet has broken up and the mothership has picked up and run around erratically, as we've seen before. We have not had to launc... Read more >

  • As usual

    Blogpost by nicole - January 16, 2006 at 3:55 8 comments
    Today I woke as usual: clueless to the state of the water and sky. Our porthole lids are down so we can sleep because of the unending light.  A great surprise was waiting for me on the deck: the sun.  We have seen the sun late in our evening a few tim... Read more >
  • The Billy G

    Blogpost by nicole - January 16, 2006 at 3:33 3 comments

    Yesterday, the Billy G and the big orange unnamed boat (that's another story there) launched in support of something the Sunrise wanted to try on the mothership during a transfer. I helped 'em launch from the deck then went to work on doing a little ... Read more >

  • Night and Day

    Blogpost by nicole - January 16, 2006 at 3:28 1 comment

    When I last wrote, we were a few days into a heavy rotation of driving off the bows of the catchers to thwart the hunt.  Then, right after I sent the last update and went to bed, some rather strange events happened in the "night." (If I didn't mention... Read more >

    from Nathan in the Southern Oceans Read more >

    The last two days have been horrific down here; yesterday evening we were trying to hold off the harpooner in very, very rough seas, heading at nearly 20 knots directly into the wind. We were in the upper ranges ...

  • The ones that got away

    An update from Nathan

    I drove the second shift of the day (so far we split the day between two groups of driver and crews); each shift thwarted the hunter for several hours until they finally exhausted the whale to the point that it was almost constant... Read more >

  • "dialogue"

    Blogpost by jhocevar - December 28, 2005 at 13:00 2 comments

    Hi All,

    It sounds like Nathan and the crews of the Esperanza and the Arctic Sunrise are keeping the whaling fleet on the run.  This is the first time we've had enough speed to prevent the whalers from losing us, and it is having a dramatic impact on ... Read more >

  • Billy Greene Custom Whaling Boat Rinsing Service

    Blogpost by anthony - December 24, 2005 at 4:08 35 comments

    An update from Nathan. 

    Today, for me personally, was one of the greatest days I've ever had.

    In my first blog post I wrote about how, 17 years ago, seeing footage from the first anti-whaling campaign led me into Greenpeace and, ultimately, to my invo... Read more >
