25th May - Today we had a very intense east coast low that produced 5-6 meter swell along the south east coast of Australia. The normally flat protected waters of Jervis Bay saw large rolling waves hitting the points and beaches.

“East coast lows” have been responsible for some of the worst maritime disasters along our coast. I have posted other stories about this type of intense system and the tragic consequenses of being caught at sea during one of these events.
