The sandbar to the east of the island is huge this year.

What a surprise, removing the berm designed to stop the port from silting is causing the port to silt up. Get ready for annual dredging operations on the west berth.

I was there yesterday and the silt virtually divides the river from the bottom end now.

Give it a few more years of deposition and we'll be able to drive to the end at high tide again! Or even sooner if we get one of those debris flow events...

Important is to see if there will be wind this weekend... Gradient doesn't look bad...
