The good news is that we have the communication systems on board that provide us advance warning of developing weather systems so that we can avoid them. Developing Lows such as this one sometimes turn into Cyclones, but it's pretty unusual this time of year and we are just being extra cautious by changing our course in the event this Low intensifies as it could pack a mean punch. Hopefully it dies out just as quickly as it formed and we can resume a more direct route to Fiji as we are now sailing NW toward Vanuatu.
Mothers of those onboard need not worry as we are playing it extra safe.
