The Research Vessel Marcus Langseth set sail for Galvesten, Texas Wednesday afternoon, leaving Yaquina Bay at around Noon – High Tide conditions. Being that the R/V Langseth is not a frequent visitor to Newport, the vessel required a tug to guide out of the bay and through the jetties. Once through the Jaws, the R/V Langseth headed for the open sea and points south to the Panama Canal, after which it will hang a hard to port and head up the Gulf of Mexico to Galveston. The R/V Langseth is a National Science Foundation vessel on contract to Columbia University in New York City.
