Will be heading towards Buzzards Bay this PM. May end up at West Island or Fall River. Anyone else planning a high wind session this PM.

Had a 3 hour session at Conimicut in upper Narragansett Bay. Amazing waves just past the lighthouse due to some tidal rip and some nice breakers near shore. Quite strong 40-50 mph most of the time. Quit when the gusts were reaching 60. Max reported gust at Conimicut Lighthouse was 65mph. Temps mid 50s.
Very Happy

Braver than me. What size equipment were you using?

Was on my 3.5, but could have used the 2.8 towards the end. I would subtract 5 mph from the readings as the anemometer is on top of the lighthouse.
