Planning on heading to Barn Island, Stonington CT, this afternoon. HRRR model is going nuts with gusts to near 60 mph by 4 pm. NWS is pretty much the same with gusts to 59 at 4.

Gusting to 70 is just not that fun. I was thanking God I was on the beach holding my gear and calculating life insurance benefits for my family, another day, be safe!

Wow!

Winds blew up to the mid 60s down at Barn Island. Probably one of the top 5, if not the windiest day I have sailed in my 37 years of windsurfing.

Probably one of the safest spots to sail other than a lake in CT. Surf is manageable and there is land just downwind.
