Cape Toon in December is h e c t i c just from point of view of its Xmas, everyone is on holiday and flocking to the "seaside", accoms are at a premium etc etc.......

Personally, if you wanted to avoid ze crowds, I'd go either November or late Jan/ early Feb....

(9-7-5 would be perfect)

Pippi langsamer, ced1, thank you!

Just one more question: Do the conditions differ during Nov. - Feb. except for the crowds? I mean in terms of wind range, temperature…

In my experience:
Oct-Nov average 15-20kn, air temperature cold, water temperature warm
Dec-Jan average 20-30kn, air temperature warmer, water temperature cold
Feb-Mar average 25-35kn, air temperature hot, water temperature freezing.

There is SE wind as early as mid Sept, I was out for a 3 hour session yesterday and at the end of the session I could not undo the pigtails from the larksheads my fingers were frozen and blue.

Anytime over the summer you are bound to get one of those famous "cape doctor" days. then your small kite will come in handy. If you get 3 or 4 days in a row…. it gets a tad breezy down there :)
