Gales and large seas off of Northern California slowing MV Tiberborg

NOAA forecast for June 12-13, 2015

We'll never forget when we sailed south off this coast back in September 2013 -- 48 hours of gales and "hazardous" steep seas combined with steering problems. Not fun. 

MV Tiberborg appears to be experiencing even worse conditions, slowing its speed to less than 9 knots.  But it is a large ship -- 172 m (L)  x 20 m (B) -- so hopefully Pelagia and the other boats on deck are not having too rough of a trip. 

Arrival in Chemainus delayed until late Sunday or Monday.
