GATEWAYS update Day 5

Strong (gale force) north-easteries forced the Voyager to tie-up for the day in Castletownbere. The orientation of the Cork embayments (NE/SW, following the Variscan regional metamorphic trend) meant the gales would have funneled down the bays and made working there impossible. Work proceeded on board involving further training on the data acquisition systems, firming of data collection protocols, and the initial processing of the new shelf multibeam sonar data from Area 4A in CARIS.
