The wind strength and direction along with wave heights and the height and direction of the sea and any swell have a direct influence on the degree of comfort you experience.

  • Wind speeds for both 10 metres and 50 metres above the sea.
  • Wind directions from the SE-S and W-NW will allow a high comfort factor. While winds from the E-NE will be less comfortable.
  • Sea heights are refered to as significant (Sig) or Maximum (Max). The significant wave is best described as the average wave height.
  • The direction of the wind waves and any swell are also very important, with the heighest comfort factor achieved with waves from the S through west to the NW. The lowest comfort factor resulting in waves from the E to the N
  • The frequence or period of the waves, is the number of seconds between wave crests. Short periods below 6-8 seconds will achieve the least vessel movement, while longer periods of around 10-13 seconds will result in increased vessel movements resulting in increased heave and roll depending on the wave direction.
