So, after returning to the ship at the time requested, I find no one around. I then hear someone talking in the conference room. I poked my head in and saw two other volunteers. They had stayed on the ship last night. I asked where everyone else was and was then informed that the trip had been delayed once more. As of today, we are now supposed to leave tomorrow (Friday) at 2 p.m. We'll see!
So, I went back home and looked up the weather advisories. See below.
See the lavender color? That is the area we will be trawling. The lavender color represents a weather advisory for GALE FORCE winds. Winds that travel 23 - 63 miles per hour are classified as gale force winds. Wave height can reach over 13 feet. If you have access to YouTube, watch this video of a small trawler in Gale Force Winds.
I also included the video on my homepage (Trawler in Gale Force Winds).
