    The vis is K@K less than a meter. Conditions is not to bad, but with all the River water running in, I dont think the sea will be cleaning up soon. Maybe the north coast or Ushaka.

    Went to Vetchies today for a swim... couldn't see my hand in front of my face under water.

    And the smell!

    I was there for about 1/2 an hour then left.
