Ocean Outlook

Ocean Outlooks forecast:

Sat 9th 2.0m Seas 2.5m Swell

8am - ESE 12-16kn
2pm - SW 16-20kn
8pm - SSW 24-28kn

It looks like there will be a few hours where the wind will drop out, but its still likely to be a gusty easterly. I think the south wester will be in just after lunch, but theres still the potential for it being ok for a bit early on.

Any thoughts?
