Strong SW at the Point

source - IWindsurf wind graph for Thursday, Nov 15This past Thursday (11/15) a strong Fall weather system rolled across the OBX bringing gale force winds from both the SW and NW though the course of the day. The morning began with warm strong SW wind in the mid 20s+ mph range under bright sunny skies. However, the frontal cloud band approached from the west, and by mid-day, the sun was gone, wind switched to NW, air turned cold, and the rain fell. I missed the action due to a full morning of software requirements/design meetings; however, most of the crew caught it down at the Point in Buxton.

Keith's Report:
Sailors included Jim, Dan, Charlie, Rick, Chad, and myself.
20 to 40 mph WSW wind, with shoulder to head high peaks. Choppy on the inside, and risk of crazy brutal backwinding when traversing the wave on the way out...it was like a horizontal tornado!
Jim was on his 4.7 , I was on a 4.0.
