What fun! Thank you for sharing.
Did you guys have an anenometer telling you it was 35 knots?
I've never sailed with a working instrument (they always seem to break...), so I've used the Beaufort
scale my whole sailing life. The video does not look anything like Force 8 to me, so it would be funny
if I have been way underestimating wind
speeds this whole time because I never had a wind
instrument to tell me for sure.
Do you guys know-- I've never considered it Force 8 until there's enough water
blowing off from the top of the sharper waves and from the little wavelets that it kind of streaks together. Can you have a steady 35 knots and not have even white crests on most of the little wavelets, does looking at the surface of the water
only work with the Beaufort
scale if the wind has been constant for a while?
