Strong Winds on the Island

acornThe "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 link this page to others to provide actual photographs of your club's activities.)
