We made the short trip from Pirates to Silva Bay around noon... no biggie, mostly sheltered water. Plenty of breeze though - also saw close to 30knots. But amazingly by 4:00 or so the wind clocked, eased and the sun burst forth.. lovely evening!
You should have waited!! But good for you getting across safely/.
