Lt Tristan Balcombe of the Royal Navy's HMS Protector, who first sighted the Ballycotton ghost ship drifting in the Atlantic six months ago. The MV Alta was abandoned by her crew 1,600 kilometres SE of Bermuda in September 2018. She then drifted 6,500 kilometres before landing on rocks on the south coast last weekend. Lt Balcombe found her in September 2019 while on a voyage to Antartica. The Protector is an ice breaker in the Royal Navy. We hear about an initiative from Inland Fisheries to get more women involved in angling. And we visit the Ireland Angling Expo where we meet charter angling skippers from Donegal who have been catching & tagging Tuna.
