I stand on deck and feel the wind on my cheek... And observe the water around the basin. If the wind is heavy enough to move my boat and yet light enough not to cause me any worrys I will go out. I don't go out if there is to much wind.
But offshore, you have to take what is given to your, not enough wind or to much wind.
