Gale force winds in the bay are common in Sept/Oct

The months of September and October in the Bay are usually windy with some gale force wind storms bringing into the Bay high seas and spectacular sights.  On Sept 1, 2008, gale force winds combined with high tides and the solstice caused swells of between seven to 12 metres into the bay….causing damages to the shore and infrastructures. 

Almost a year later, on Oct 27, 2009, winds as high as 150km/hour hit the bay in the night, causing major damages to the Yacht Club marina and along the shore.
