> The four Sea Shepherd ships are underway and have moved into the search
> pattern. We believe that the whalers should be in the Southern Ocean
> soon. The four ships have completed their speed tests and are very
> confident that we will be able to successfully keep up and block the
> slipway of the Nisshin Maru once we find her. All the ships have been
> conducting defensive drills to fend off any aggressive maneuvers by the
> harpoon ships, as experienced by the Bob Barker last year. The new
> helicopter pilot on the MY Steve Irwin has been training hard and is
> getting used to flying in these cold conditions. He is very enthusiastic
> and is willing to fly up to 8 hours a day in search of the whaling fleet.
> The entire crew of 120 volunteers is very optimistic and prepared to
> shut down the illegal whaling operations this year. It is 24th of
> January and it is the first time that no whales have been harpooned this
> late into the whaling season. We have all our ships in position on guard
> in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary and we anticipate confrontation
> with the fleet any day now. The crew have been running through training
> drills and all primed and ready to go.
