PORT CALL IN VICTORIA, B. C.
Leg 169 began with the first line ashore in Victoria, B. C. at the Ogden Point, WestCan Terminal, Pier A at 1515 hr on 21 August. Normal port call activities and unloading and loading had been completed on 16 and 17 August during the Leg 169S port call so the Leg 169 port call was primarily for the purpose of changing scientific parties. The cores from Saanich Inlet Holes 1033B and 1034B were off-loaded. The ship's departure was delayed for a few hours while a replacement flew in to replace the ODP curator, who had a medical problem. The last line ashore was at 0045 hr on 22 August, and the ship departed for Hole 858G.
