Yes, it will be very bumpy in CGB. Stay in West End or JVD until the swells pass.

It's pretty rolly here today. The SE corner is pretty protected and would be fine but the dinghy dock will be tough to navigate today and tomorrow.

If you are on a cat the SE corner will be fine. That’s not a really large swell.

The swells although small have started affecting the north anchorages last night they’re predicting 4-5’ N swells this evening which will make it very uncomfortable.

FYI: I think the channel markers for the reef are still missing.
