A good start in 1992

Hello everybody !!!!!!

01-01-1992 was a really BIG DAY here in Denmark.

It was blowing 20-25 M/s with gust to 30 m/s and the air temp is about
8 degress, I was out there totaly overpowered with my 3.5 m2.

The weather forecast for next 4 days is the 15-20 m/s from SW temp up to 10 C.
So all weekend is going to be windsurfing, YEAHHHH !!

hang loose.

        for you inch and mile folks, the convenient ratio to
        remember is
                        1 m/s  ~   2 mi/hr

        (2.237, more precisely), so it was really honkin!

        Even better: 1 m/s  ~  2 knots
        (really 1.94) with 3% error only, instead of 12%
        (as if we ever measured wind that accurately).
