Statistiques de Houle pour Yacht, Toute l'Année: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Yacht that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal year. It is based on 33260 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours illustrate increasing wave sizes. Blue shows the smallest swells, less that 0.5m (1.5 feet) high. Green and yellow illustrate increasing swell sizes and red illustrates the largest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell occurs.

The diagram implies that the most common swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was ENE, whereas the the most common wind blows from the NW. The chart at the bottom shows the same thing but without direction information. For example, swells larger than 1.5 feet (0.5m) coincided with good wind conditions 10% of the time, equivalent to 36 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal year but 0.8% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 0.8%, equivalent to (3 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Yacht is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Yacht about 10% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 19% of the time. This is means that we expect 106 days with waves in a typical year, of which 36 days should be clean enough to surf.

IMPORTANT: Beta version feature! Swell heights are open water values from NWW3. There is no attempt to model near-shore effects. Coastal wave heights will generally be less, especially if the break does not have unobstructed exposure to the open ocean.
