Possibly the worst two directions. Wind is extremely gusty in front of the Clubhouse. Areas C & D will be the best but not ideal. Reach along the foreshore.

Opposite to the prevailing wind often lower temperatures too. Areas B,C and D will work, but most windsurfers will stick around B, in front of the clubhouse. Reach from shore to shore.More or less coming from the dam. If you're prepared to work upwind a little you get good wind at C and D. Excellent long reaching from the club to the dam, more waves closer to the dam.

Coming right at the clubhouse the reach will be along the shore. Not the best, but if you are work upwind towards the far shore you can reach from A through B to C and if the wind shifts round the corner D too.

Wind can be hit or miss here. SSW is usually great, given good reaches across B to the far shore. SW can be either excellent or gusty.

The prevailing wind gives excellent conditions reaching from the club to the far shore area B. Best attended.

Setting off will be difficult in gusty winds even for experienced windsurfers. Around 100 yards towards A you can get a good reach towards the mouth of the reservir (through A)
