Why "Roaring 40°s Kayaking"?

The Roaring 40°s are the westerly winds associated with the latitudes of approximately 40 degrees in the southern hemisphere and the predominant trade winds in Tasmania. These winds blow mostly during spring, and to a lesser extent, autumn. They have influenced the entire island of Tasmania and have created some of the most spectacular and unique habitat on earth, including Tasmania's Wilderness World Heritage listed rainforests and buttongrass moorlands. Old sailing ships used the Roaring 40°s to make fast passages to and from Australia.
