I sail almost exclusively at Jones Beach, and haven't found that you need more than 12-15 degrees of temperature differential between Astoria and Portland to see decent wind. The wind gauge definitel ...

Jones Beach was pretty nice this afternoon, but I was the only windsurfer out there. There were only 2 kites. I was on a 5.0 and a 5.5.
