Around here in 2010 we were getting record breaking heat all summer long. But we went out anyway in the evenings, even with the temps above 90F, and found that 90% of the time there was a great breeze that kept things pleasant (as long as you avoided running). This year, not so much. The hot days and evenings seemed to be windless.
It's a shame, my one and only genoa (a 110) was damaged pretty badly at the very end of 2010, forcing me to buy a new one sooner than I had planned. I went with another 110 based on the breezes that year. If I had known how bad this year was, I'd have gotten a 135.
It will take a few more years before I know what "typical" really is around here.
