stuck at 0.7mHB, no higher
.
Ballenas was 26knots W at 5am and Halibut bank was 16knots, but local wind was 0 knots.

Sand heads peaked at 2am and went down to 14 knots. If sand heads is not over 15+knots HB may not go any higher, half strait was windy, the other half <5 knots, just past HB

Sunday morning is looking like the real deal boys. Might even be one of those unicorn Ambleside days.

Sat 9pm-11pm SE 15g25
Sun 2am W 25g40


Tides are good for Wreck all morning. I'll be kiting if it's still windy though.

I saw that. Looks a bit suspicious though as EnvCan is the only model in support at the moment. Sunrise 7AM.

Edit: hmmmm. Now, a Special Weather Statement...

by 7am Sunday morning we'll know. 8am Tide (6ft) is good for West wind, just right and increasing after. if that's true,It won't take long to get there.

if forecast is 25-40, then expect 1.3m+, like old times, and a double rainbow for C36
