Re: estimate wind speed

Whitecaps farther out tell me its windier out there. Whitecaps start at about 14 on open water so I think you are right Lee. Looks like there is enough water to keep the wind chop down but that far shore is several miles away. The lake I sail on is 2 miles by 3 miles and whitecaps at about 12. I would not take my Mill Creek out in whitecaps!
