Voyage summary

The CAPSTAN training voyage on RV Investigator was cancelled due to several participants becoming unwell with flu-like symptoms in the lead up to the voyage. This measure was taken as a precaution to safeguard the health and well-being of all participants and crew on the vessel in light of the rapidly evolving situation with COVID-19.

This was to have been the third voyage to support the CAPSTAN (Collaborative Australian Postgraduate Sea-training Alliance Network) sea training program, following on from previous voyages in April 2019 and November 2017.
