Hi Nick,

Nice to confirm waterspouts off Sydney - there was always a good chance waterspouts would occur in conditions like yesterday.

Just one question given it is not as clear on the pictures provided. I see in the last 4 pictures a disturbance on the water - a similar distance from the waterspout. There seems to be a very thin strand that perhaps extend down to it - Nick can you confirm if this connection can be made on the higher resolution images? Just curious.

Regards,

Jimmy Deguara

Hi Nick,

Now did your friend know about the second waterspout?
