Flushing the loo in the Southern Hemisphere

Hurray! We just crossed the equator into the Southern Hemisphere! Everyone has been waiting for this moment in the computer lab, crowding around the screens as the Latitude changed from N to S through a number of zeros. There was no red line to cross or a welcome sign floating. Just an imaginary line imposed on the surface of the vast ocean and us with our numbers.

The ocean has been relatively calm as if welcoming us with a warm embrace. Or perhaps it is just a front, beckoning us deeper into the heart of the ocean only to swallow us into the storm of storms (Luck seems to be on our side looking at the sea state predictions – guess Poseidon likes us). We are approaching our first waypoint where we will survey the area for an ideal location for a gravity core so hopefully Poseidon stays with us. So, now that we are in the Southern Hemisphere, which direction will the flush of the loo go? Clockwise or Anti-clockwise?
