Wind Speed gusting to 40

OK if one of my children is praying for wind for us so we can go sailing, STOP!

Our instructor hasn't gotten here yet this morning, but it's pretty evident that we won't be able to go sailing today or tomorrow unless it's possible to get the boat out of here and a little farther up north toward Pensacola. As soon as he gets here we're going to ask, but given the small tear in our jib, I'm not sure that's going to be possible. We'll keep you updated but in the mean time here's a short clip of the wind here. It's the same as the wave height issue - you can't really see how strong it is in the video, but if you look at the water you can watch the gusts shoot across the surface at about 40 knots.
