YK09-12 update 2

Update from FS, aboard the YK09-12 cruise at the Japan Trench:

We are still in Mutsu Wan, the sky became blue and after a windy night the weather is now nice. However, the typhoon is still not far and we are now hoping to dive already tomorrow, but it looks difficult as we have a very long ride (more then 12 hours) to go to the site, and the sea outside of the bay is certainly still quite Rock n'Roll.
So in the meantime we are relaxing, writing papers, aligning sequences, and praying for good conditions.
