The following update is from EA5RM, Toni Gonzalez

Today at 21:20 UTC, Nigel Jolly, Braveheart owner, declared an emergency
and ordered to VP8STI team to cease all operations and return to the ship.
A large
ice flow that had broken away due last nights storm starts to block the
to the Bay where they were camped. There was strong potential for the ice
flow to prevent
Braveheart to get them.

           Team is now safely aboard the Braveheart and they are moving
away from Southern
Thule Is. All the equipment and personal gear is still on the island. They
hope to
return to camp site during next good weather window. Once they retrieve
their equipment,
they could make a determination as to whether they can proceed to South
Georgia to do VP8SGI
as planned.

            VP8STI QRT !
