Local winds might be (land/sea breezes) - but most larger scale winds

the
northwesterlies aren't too strong, the temperature differential thing
with
the Tasman Sea gets going and we'll get a sea breeze.


Our coast is wave-dominated rather than tide dominated - only around
~1 metre tides.

Well..... We do have fiber optic cables.
