Enjoy!
Hey Bob,

Actually, that depends on where you are geographically. Out in Oregon on the Columbia River, it starts at about 25-30 . The folks in Corpus tend to sail at lower wind speeds.............

Seems to me that they always appear from the shoreline

Yeh, but we don't have to share waves with sturgeon! Although, most of us turn to face in the direction of Hood River for a few private moments of silence two times a day!

I have seen this guide before but unfortunately it only works near the water!

The guide I use in Florida during the winter near the east coast is:
Wind from the street side can get to 20mph. Curbside or frt/rear limit to 15mph. Be sure your weather forecast are fairly accurate. If you'll be away say 4 hours or more and it's a marginal call, bring it in. If it's anything close to marginal at night, bring it in. Zip Dee's are easy to work with.
