Steady Wind Defined

We windsurfers dream of steady wind. Today, steady wind came to Duxbury:
Averages of 20. Lulls of 18 ("lulls", ha!). "Gusts" of 22. For 3 hours straight. Then, variation crept in, with gusts of 24 and lulls of 14. I'd be happy about that every day.

I missed it. It was not in the forecast. I was tired after three days of windsurfing. I had to work. I did not believe the wind would stick around. I never sailed Duxbury in a SE. I have many, many excuses. But I really wish I'd been there.
