We just spent last week doing the rounds and the swell last week was quite big and lasted most of the week.

Monkey Point was particularly bad but the bouy area was ok, didn't dare go in close though.

The Baths were extremely rough. We dinghied into Devils bay and spent a few hours on shore there instead of tying up at The Baths. Made us do the boulder canyon again which was great.

This is what the swell does to Mosquito Rock -http://homepage.ntlworld.com/martin.eaton1/MosquitoRock.JPG

And this is the NE entrance to Cane Garden-
