They have a nice playground with what appears to be ample wind. I am just a little jealous.
I have not seen a video yet from Jesper where he had to put up a 8.2 or the like.

The wind is so ample, it has a name: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fremantle_Doctor

Quote:
During summer months, the Fremantle Doctor consistently blows from the southwest along the southern half of the west coast, starting between 10 am and 3 pm. It can penetrate as far inland as 100 kilometres (60 mi), reaching York in the early evening.

In Perth, the capital city of Western Australia, the wind is named the Fremantle Doctor because it appears to come from the nearby coastal city of Fremantle, and it brings welcome relief from the summertime high temperatures.

The Fremantle Doctor often cools the Perth suburbs by several degrees, whilst nearer the coast the wind can be quite strong, often blowing between 15 and 20 knots and making afternoon beach visits unpleasant.

Edit: Nitro, someone in Oz has just raised the bar on us.
