After a successful press meeting yesterday, our expedition is now nearing its end. This means we are about to carry out the last few dives in the Sound. Sadly, as the previous entries in our diary have illuminated, the weather continues to be a challenge that we cannot ignore.

Today, we were again stuck at port due to a strong southern wind creating big swells and strong currents throughout the Sound. Instead, we spent the day trying to get back on track with collating the video material and data collected over the few past days.

The expedition is reaching its end, and today was the day in which we were going to present the campaign through a press wheel to Danish and Swedish mass media. Different media, including the main Swedish television chain have been interested in getting to know our work in this area of the Baltic Sea. Lasse Gustavson, the Ocean director in Europe, together with Mike Palmgren, with expert knowledge of these waters and great collaborator in this expedition, were those in charge of presenting this awaited event.

The end of the expedition is now nearing and, even though we have been able to advance a lot over the weekend, the weather does not give us any respite. Today the forecast indicated good conditions, but as we came out of the port we saw how the waves started to climb, so we have to work against the clock.

The day started early in the best possible manner: raiding the buffet! Once our bellies were filled a long day in the sea awaited us. Today, we are heading to the port of Rää and need to catch a train and a bus to reach our destination.

Everything is prepared and checked well in advance before departing towards the channel between Helsingborg and Helsingør at one of the most northern sites of the expedition. The weather is good and the sun is shine, but distant clouds suggest the wind will soon pick up.
