Depressions in the southern hemisphere

Depressions in the southern hemisphere behave exactly like their northern relatives, except that they are the other way up. The air moves clockwise around southern 'lows' but the winds in the warm sector are still westerly and the mechanism of the systems is exactly the same.

Land distorts depressions and can render their behaviour far less predictable than at sea. To appreciate their organisation to the full you need to tackle them in mid-ocean. You don't have to like them, few of us do, but there is a straightforward gutsy character about them that you might just find yourself missing if ever you slope off to the tropics for a year or two of trade-wind sailing.
