This was truly the first high wind day since June!!!!!!!!!! Talking about when the Weather Report show it to be over 10mph.

I have gone out to the club not expecting to sail, forcast was 3-5 and it was more like 8-10.

Real time map of wind around the world, zoomed into the United States. For the whole world view, just mouse wheel back. Click and drag to rotate the planet.

Got a nice surprise yesterday. It rained, Tried to go Mountainbiking, too wet, took off to the lake, wind was only showing to be about 6 mph, but it seamed like it was blowing harder than that. Got the boat rigged, it was pushing 10 mph....... Trapezed out flying hull (First time since I got a harness).......... 16.9 mph top speed, left the "Map my ride" app on my phone running!.

Warm weather here, but not much in the way of winds this past weekend. When I came into the harbor on Saturday, I had to do the last little bit of the channel using the paddle.
