All the way to New Zealand!

#Update: added even more heroic pictures

Heroic scenes today in the wave flume, as the University of New South Wales (Australia) boys, with aid from the other teams, dug a massive hole in the beach to retrieve their groundwater kit. After about 3 hours, the kit was retrieved, the holes were filled and the beach profile was restored to its original state.
Afterwards, test series B1 was run with waves of Hs=0.8 m and Tp = 8s (the same as series A1) in order to rebuild the bar. Based on the beach profile at the end of the day, it seems like we managed to create a (modest) bar indeed.
