Last night Mermaid Sapphire left the lagoon and steamed to the deep water on the west side of Ulithi Atoll.
This morning we moved Mermaid Sapphire a short distance inside the Ulithi lagoon.
This morning we moved Mermaid Sapphire half a mile east into the lee of Asor Island.
This morning the Mermaid Sapphire steamed south of Falalop Island, turned west, and passed through Mugai Channel into Ulithi’s lagoon.
At dawn this morning, after steaming southwest all night, Mermaid Sapphire arrived at Ulithi, the nearest land to Challenger Deep.
