Looks good up North Saturday- Sunday and into week.
so far anyway.
Is there a camp ground up there or is it better to just book into the George town county jail..

No campground that I'm aware of. Low head rather than Georgetown campground would be 'nicer'

Weather looks good for Saturday. Hopefully I might get back on the water Sunday!

Damo,
Wikicamps lists a campground at the Pier Hotel in Georgetown. I haven't been there, but the reviews were actually quite good on Wikicamps, might be worth giving them a bell.
Otherwise the Low Head Tourist park is pretty good and has very clean facilities, although a little exposed to the wind if you're in a tent.

Saturday after it goes WSW with good waves looks great for some Bell Buoy down the line action

I take it that the morning would be best tomorrow before the low tide at 10am?

I would have thought 11am onwards with the incoming tide but it will probably be good early too.

Couple of spare fins wouldn't go astray at 3/4 high tide

Any local insights on BB forecast for later today?
Wind dropped to nothing up this end of coast at change. Bom map looks different to Forecast

I reckon the wind will come back in couple of hours... It usually stays reasonably strong westerly at Bell Buoy even with WSW forecast
