I guess the name Gale Winds says it all!

The Big Wind
Unlike yesterday's big win, today we are waiting for the big wind! For almost a week the prediction has been for gale force winds tomorrow, with 20-30 mph winds leading up to it today. This morning we woke up to light southerly winds and wondered if maybe the scheduled Sunfish races could actually be run, but they were postponed because all the forecasts indicated winds continuing to build all day...and they were right! By dawn we are supposed to have squalls and 40-50 mph winds. So we (and all the boats) are hunkered down and ready for whatever comes our way. Ironically this gigantic yacht came into the harbor and headed straight to the Hope Town Marina...
