Sailbuoy Wave Deployed

We deployed another Sailbuoy to collect more wind data in the Labrador Sea. This Sailbuoy (SB Wave) will spend the next 3 weeks going North until the end of March when it (hopefully) should arrive for the tail of the deep convection season.

During our deployment today we had a fantastic backdrop for the Sailbuoy (picture cred: Mark Downey) formed by Bell Island in Conception Bay.
