Towing of the barge from Gradiste to the last site Pestani was done using one of the tourist boats.

The drilling operations continue. We chartered one of the tourist boats on the lake to tow the barge from Gradiste site to the last site in front of the eastern shore. As we still have some technical problems with two of the anchoring winches, it took quite a while to get two of the four anchors free after the storm. In the late afternoon hours, however, the barge was positioned at the new site, and drilling started with the nightshift. Everybody is happy that drilling is ongoing again and that there is still a good chance to get at least one core from this site with a water depth of 260 m and a target depth of ca 150 m. Drilling will be finished latest on Sunday (June 2nd), when the barge will be towed to the shore again for disassembly.
