Rutgers Institute of Marine and Coastal Sciences' undersea Slocum glider RU27, christened Scarlet Knight by the U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS), was launched from Tuckerton, New Jersey on April 27, 2009. For 221 days, scientists and students on both sides of the Atlantic navigated the Scarlet Knight 7,400 km eastward across the ocean's ever-changing eddy field, avoiding fishing and shipping activity, dodging storms and hurricanes, and surviving the biological onslaught of bamacles and predatory fish. Entering Spanish waters during the stormy North Atlantic winter, the Scarlet Knight was recovered off the coast of Spain by the Puertos del Estado research vessel Investigador. Exactly 1 year ago today, on December 9, 2009, the Scarlet Knight made safe landfall in Baiona, Spain, the first port visited by Columbus' caravel La Pinta upon its return from the New World in 1493, and now the first port of entry for a truly ocean-class undersea glider.
