Historic graphs of wind direction/speed

Information used to create the following graphs was obtained from the NSC Lac Deschenes Wind Statistics Archive.



The biggest winds for 1998 - 55 knot gust! I can't imagine trying to sail when the gust is double the average wind speed...


My last day windsurfing in Ottawa (December 1st, 1998) What a way to finish the season!

The windiest day I have ever sailed (to date!). It became even worse, with a maximum gust
over 40 knots in the afternoon.
