The exchange boat for the LWD/MWD tools and personnel arrived at 16:30. Offloading of the tools and personnel transfer was completed and the boat was away at 21:25. While waiting for the boat and during transfer operations, the drill string was tripped to near the seafloor. Hole U1329B was spudded with first core on deck at 21:05. Core U1329B-1H was a full core so we picked the bit up 5 m and spudded Hole U1329C to obtain a mudline core. Core U1329C-1H recovered 8.19 m. By midnight the hole had been advanced to 36.6 mbsf with an average recovery of 106%.
