General Conditions

During the winter months (November to January) the wind is from the north-east at 15 to 20 knots. The Christmas winds can produce 25 to 30 knots for several days at a time. In February the winds move to the east and by June it changes to the south-east at 10 to 15 knots. September and October the trade winds are at their weakest and the weather can be less settled. By November the high pressure system around Bermuda starts to stabilise and 15 to 20 knot breezes become the norm.  Local seas are “relaxed” seas and generally in the 3 to 4 foot range.
