Anyone else think it's none existent this season compared to previous years. October was ok now it's just died. Is this the new normal for Perth? Hope not.

South Coast has been the place to be in November this year.

In November 2020 we also had 10 days in a row without any sea breezes and total of about 15 days of good wind out of the whole month, so it's not unheard of for November in Perth to have such little wind.

Based on my stats, December and January each provided an average of 23 sea breeze days in Perth over the last 13 years.

Dec 2010 was the worse with only 17 days of sea breeze and Jan 2021 was the worse with only 15 days of sea breeze.

There are still about 90 days of sea breeze left until the end of April 2024, but if we get many more heatwaves (which is quite likely), it could be less than that.

Sell all your gear now. All hope is lost. Take up crochet, it's your only choice.

I kited 35 times between 10 Oct. and 10 Dec. This year. That's more than 50% of days over 2 months, more that 100 sessions over the season if extrapolated until the end of April. That's good!
