The wind continues

Wild and crazy
Hello Friends,

20-25 kts of SE wind pretty much says it all. Never mind that we also have 3.5 metres of SSE swell at 10 seconds apart. Unless you’re tucked right into a very protected corner, there’s no hope of a wave. As the picture shows, Dee Why point is ripped to bits. And that will be the story pretty much everywhere I’m afraid.

The outlook remains for lots of wind from unhelpful directions for the coming week. But, the latest forecast maps are showing a fair amount of activity, so I’m hopeful that once this windy regime breaks down, it won’t go flat on us. But it could be another 7-10 days at least…

Ah well, have a fun Sunday anyway!

Next tide is a high at 1310.
