Wind Speed

Ahoy Big reds scale is as follows;

1 to 5 knots - work on the boat
5 to 10 knots - work on the boat pay attention to wind direction
10 to 15 knots - put tools away throw off dock lines
15 to 20 knots set every piece of sail cloth I have
20 to 30 knots ease the sheets a little
30 to 40 knots drop main ,open rum, check radio is working
40 to 50 knots drop jib and lie to with rum
50 to 70 knots put on clean underware
70 to 100 knots think seriously about next vessel
