Hello Friends,

As of 0500 the MHL buoy was shwoing 1.7 metres of 12 second energy from the SE (131°). Wind at 0630 was out of the WNW at 7 kts under clear skies. Air was 10C (going to a toasty 25C later) and tide was dropping to a 0.6 m low at 0750. High is at 1430. Beachwatch says the water temp has dropped to a chilly (for Sydney) 16C.

Line at Longy

Not much at Butterbox

The point mostly missing it now

Interesting set at Kiddies

No Mans shutdown

Lugga runner

Probably not…

Not obviously good at Northy
