RV Mirai Arctic Mission 2014 Post #1 - Departure From Dutch Harbor

Japanese research vessel RV Mirai departed Dutch Harbor northbound for her annual Arctic research mission 31 September.  I am onboard once again as Ice Navigator to provide Captain Kan Matsuura and Chief Scientist Jun Inoue support in operating in and near ice.  We passed through the Bering Strait on the evening of 02 September and began dedicated observations with a CTD rosette cast off Little Diomede Island.
