Lovely. Wind really sporting straight down the river and making white caps. And we've got close to 100 people making the 1-mile boat ride to our annual island oyster feast event. Gonna be a wet boat ride..
It's a very subjective call..... If it's blowing 20 mph and I'm on my Hobie cat, the wind is perfect. If I'm beating in to 4' seas with my 18' skiff, it's a hurricane.Where is the wind, as measured by the Beaufort Scale?
(as taken from 'A Dictionary for Landlubbers')
- No wind at all
- Too little wind
- Too much wind
- Much too much wind
- Wind, wind wind - whooooeeeee will it ever stop blowing?

Been sailing cats for 40 year plus...and still can. Barely. Started out on Cougars. My first Cougar was a 1966 MKIII. The most challenging cat I ever sailed was a B-Lion...that thing was a monster to handle. That was around 1983 or so..when I was Commodore of the Purdue U. sailing and racing club. I've also had a Soul Cat and the successor Nacra. But today all I have left is one Hobie 18.You still flexible enough to sail a pontoon?
