Working my way upwind just to blast back downwind, again, and again……

Kingston, Ont

What a crazy windy day yesterday. I have seen my sheer of wind this summer season and yesterday was pretty spectacular. I didn’t get a chance to take many pictures so I will give you a short recap.
We arrived at Kingston Yacht Club on Thursday late afternoon to make the crew exchange as easy as possible. My mother joined the cruise while Bill returned home as he had racing obligations. It is the Club Championship weekend after all….
There are many expressions for the type of winds we saw yesterday, but the one which comes to mind is

It blew the dogs off the chains

I will post a picture of the wind meter which was running at KYC. Not sure how clear it will be!! This was taken before the second blow came through which seemed almost insignificant after what came through earlier.
