When the wind varies by 50% every few minutes, whats a measly 15% difference?

I agree, I consider myself a sailor first and sailors talk kts not mph. When I realized that the sensors read mph I thought it to be very strange for a sport based on sailing.

Do we not use words like luft, starboard, etc.? Tradition is important!
