So my wife and I took out the Capri this morning, along with out two teenage nieces... We had a great time right up until the wind got crazy. Things got crazy in a hurry; the wind was gusting from zero to full blast, switching from one direction to another, then still, then back up and gusty. My wife and one niece spent the entire boat ride squealing and clutching the the sides of the boat. I was getting frustrated, because as soon as we started making good progress, the wind died, switched directions, or would disappear. We struggled to have a good time, to say the least. My question is this: when you're looking over the weather report for coming days, what are the signs that lead you to decide, "Yes - THAT'S going to be a great sailing day!" or - the opposite - "Nope - we'll only be frustrated with a weather report like that." Where's the cutoff? We had wind gusts of up to 28 mph, but nothing consistent at all. The only thing that saved me was our little 2 hp Honda. We were on the opposite side of the lake when things REALLY kicked up and out of control. So, we dropped sail, fired up the Honda, and headed in. Simply put: we gave up. So - what do you guys look for in the weather report?
