A very quiet day, most people stayed up through the night. When we got up, the rosette was once again not working. The conductivity-depth-temperature (CTD) acquisition system and pH sensors were not functioning and the pump turned off after reaching a certain depth. Scientists relying on the water samples were very frustrated. The ship cannot move further west out of the gulf as planned since the forecast showed 25 knots of wind west of Banks Island. We continued to retrieve moorings deployed in the last 2 years. New moorings were deployed for continued measurements. We had a big party and the theme was Camper's Christmas. I did not know what this was all about until Veronique explained that it is a Quebec tradition for RV campers to have Christmas celebrations in the summer. We had a lot of fun and a lot of dancing!
