Great Australian Bight

Hi all, we are planning on sailing from Perth to Sydney across the bight in a seawind 1250. Looking for any advice on timing and picking a weather window from sailors who have done it before.
Thanks

Can one of the multihull folks who knows about Seawinds answer this question, please?

Re: Great Australian Bight

Thanks guys, those threads are ver informative. Trying to soak up as much info as possible before we go. So far the consensus seems to be to wait for a weather window - and be prepared to wait a while!!! ��

The best place to wait is, of course, Albany.
