Re: Talk about blow...

Not sustained. Gusts. We are the path of the lows which revolve around Antarctica. So we have front/low weather system. These hammer us at various times of the year. Commonly 20/30k. But we getplenty of periods of light wind too. In fact in summer high pressure systems tend to push the lows further south and it is great sailing here. It is all well forecast these days. But just like the media, i highlighted the scarier bits.
