Beaufort Scale in Hout Bay . . .

I wonder what the Beaufort number is for these conditions?

Thanks to Roy for this pic from near his house.

Note the blinding spray that flies right across the harbour. Wind gusts of 60kts plus are not uncommon in these conditions. I guess its a Force 8/9 with gusts up to Force 11 . . . .
