It's 12 knots + NE at Manly and I can see someone out at Wanda - not bad for a Friday arvo in August.

It got around to the northeast yesterday arvo in Newcastle. I'm a little confused where all these northeasterly forecasts are coming from as the
ocean temperatures are not exactly freezing
Considering the temperature has been in the low 20's in the afternoons in newy and the ocean temp is roughly 16 to 18, that doesn't seem like much of a difference to me. However it won't be long before the temps are hitting 30 again and if the ocean stays at about 18 to 20, maybe we are in for a good spring northeasterly season? Lord I hope so. I'm dying here.

I've had five NE sessions here in the Shoalhaven over the past two weeks. Okay, so whilst none of them have been nuking, it's been fantastic cruising conditions on the 8.6 - 7.8 sizes. Like any drug however, I want more!!!!
