Parte del 15/02/2015

Dos tormentas están afectando diferentes partes de la flota. Para la cabeza de la flota, una una baja subtropical al este de las islas Chatham se moverá hacia el sureste, enfrente del Cheminées Poujoulat. Esto les llevará fuertes viento del SE rolando a SSO y con mar movido. Mientras tanto, una intensa baja presión se está moviendo al suroeste de Tasmania, con el We Are Water como mayor perjudicado puesto que este sistema se mueve hacia el este.
