'Aquarius' is currently moving at eight knots towards the Spanish port of Valencia.
Aboard this ship there are 106 people, and these are considered the most vulnerable cases - the children, the women, the families and some of the unaccompanied minors.
Alongside Aquarius there are two other ships transporting the other people who have been rescued this past weekend - the Italian navy and the Italian coastguard are assisting with this transfer.
The trip will be challenging and long, at least 4 days to get to Spain in the teeth of bad weather. We are expecting the weather to turn, the wind has already started to pick up. We are expecting 4-metre waves ahead.
Of course this will test the patience and the endurance of the people aboard Aquarius. These people have already spent a lot of time at sea and tell us that they are looking forward to finally reaching European shores.
