Butlletí del 15/02/2015

Dues tempestes estan afectant diferents parts de la flota. Al capdavant de la flota, un una baixa subtropical a l'est de les illes Chatham es mourà cap al sud-est, davant del Cheminées Poujoulat. Això els portarà fort vent del SE rolant a SSW i amb mar mogut. Mentrestant, una intensa baixa pressió es mourà al sud-oest de Tasmània, amb el We Are Water com a major perjudicat, ja que aquest sistema es mou cap a l'est.
