"Big Island" is certainly capable of living up to its name in more ways
than one. Notably, both windsurfers and sailors were recently buffeted
by blasts of up to 55 miles per hour during an unprecedented dual regatta,
billed as the Big Island Blowout, that saw first windsurfers and then sailboats
scream wide around the weather mark - and then try to head toward home
in the most efficient way possible, beating against unseasonably heavy
winds. But, in the true spirit of wind enthusiasts, there was more excitement
than unhappiness about the unusual conditions. And, certainly, the mainlanders
who came over to get a feel for the island wind experience got more than
their money's worth in terms of thrills. Want to get a taste of what it
was like to be at the Big Island Blowout? (You can
