As Jock says - prevailing afternoon winds in summer are souwesters which present a gusty crosswind in the 15 - 30 kt range, sometimes more.
It may be worth bearing this in mind as the mornings are usually light easterlies, giving the unwary a false sense of security, until they return to the strip to find the "Freo Doctor" has really kicked in.
Someone ended up in the lake at t/o over there last year sometime with 4 pob with more than a little help from the good Doctor.
Also watch out for Peacocks on the strip. They seem to enjoy prancing out when you're on late final.
Also a fair bit of sheer on late final coming over the dunes for 27.
Still well worth the flight and be sure to do a circuit or 2 of the isle - magnificent from the air.
Oh - and about the proposed increase in l/f's - disgraceful. Seems in line with all the other price rises over there lately. How long before Rotto is out of Joe Averages budget ?
