      This is my home windsurfing spot so I get to see it in all conditions across all seasons.

      I am not much of a winter sailor here because the water can get pretty cold and when the antarctic wind blows from the south it can be freezing cold…and yes I am a softy.

      During the Months of November to about March (during summer) afternoon sea-breezes (12 to 25 knots) are common place (from the South or South-West) making the sailing opportunities fairly regular.

      On the down-side, there is quite a bit of fetch across the bay when the wind blows from the South making the water very rough and choppy (also creating a bit of a shore break at the launching area). Another problem is during the peak of summer there can be a lot of Jelly Fish. They are not the killer type but can give you a bit of a sting so wetsuits are pretty essential most of the time.

      On the plus-side I get to store my gear at the Elwood Sailing Club and hang out with a great bunch of windsurfers and when the conditions are right the sailing can be pretty good.
