Yeah - shame it's a bit light now but NOAA says it will get better later...

NORTHEAST WINDS ARE
EXPECTED TO GUST BETWEEN 40 AND 45 KNOTS AS SEAS RAPIDLY BUILD TO
BETWEEN 8 AND 13 FEET OVER OUR OPEN WATERS TODAY.

Have fun.

Tillerman's just mad because you trounced him earlier. Where in Boston do you normally sail out of? I'm based in Beantown too. :D

I sail Stars out of Cottage Park Yacht Club in Winthrop.

Except when it's windy ...

Breaking a mast in conditions like there were on Wednesday night was a real possibility.

It's not my boat, so it wasn't my decision not to sail. I suggested that we take the Lasers out for a blast around the harbor...but my boat needs a new inspection hatch that hasn't arrived from APS yet.
