The Melbourne to King Island Race Weather update
The PredictWind models are in broad agreement but the Australian model is not agreeing so we will have to wait later in the week for a more accurate forecast. The Predictwind models are forecasting winds from the South starting at 10knots and increasing to 25 knots as the yachts approach King Island. As there will be some tacking involved, your location east or west of the rhumb line will be all important. The Predictwind models have a Beneteau first 40 finishing at 7 pm on Saturday night.
The Australian Access model has the wind from the east increasing during the day and lighten off as the fleet approached King Island
