As a matter of fact, I was out sailing this weekend. I broke my rule about not heading out unless it was above 40F. It was great out there. Of course you need to dress for it, but at least here we had the Bay largely to ourselves and it was gorgeous. Mostly 10-15 knot breeses although we saw some serious gusts into the mid-20 knot range (not so bad running but a bit of pain upwind given that the denser air really gives this stuff some serious wallop power)
