Westerly wind wrecked high tide but after 4pm the wind varied between clam and light cross-off SE. This was much as forecast with he only small error was the forecast calling for the westerly to peak at 3pm when it actually peaked at about 2pm. That's splitting hairs really. The swell forecast was right too with waves to about shoulder-high.
