A windy week tested the skill and mettle of the Hewitt Family & friends. The sea was kind enough for the journey out to the Swains but a ‘high in the Bight’ coupled with a low developing in the coral sea (almost exactly over the Kanimbla!) meant the conditions proved quite challenging for fishing.

Of course it pays to be philosophical about the weather: Ian’s group have encountered many years of near perfect weather and excellent catches, so one average year out of seven great ones isn’t such a bad outcome.
