General Information

This can be a very quick spot. 36 knots has been achievied here to date!

 

Best time is an hour or so before low as the tide sucks out of the creek towards the harbour proper and keeps the water flat.

 

Best wind direction for speed is WNW , but this hardly ever happens so we are content with W or WSW, the more S in it the gustier it becomes.

 

Also a good spot to launch into the harbour proper on a low tide, but be mindful of the currents at the entrance, you never want to sail through here when there is too much tide running, if under powered, as it really sucks
