It looks like the weak change will have moved through Melbourne on boxing day which will leave the fleet in southerly winds that will increase during the day. Some models are predicting an hour or two of northerly so that will give the navigators some interesting options. I have included the Predictwind 8km resolution winds and as you will see the timing between the models are different.
