Hi Ken, admittedly last weekend was quiet but the one before was windy with gusts up to 25 knots. Despite a good orientation (West wind is usually rather steady here) it was panic on water. Most of the turbulence may be caused by ground or water roughness and carried over long distances. So be it, but what is the anatomy of a gust (or a lull)? Racers, notably formula ones because of their giant sails, are keen to negotiate gusts and keep planing in lulls. I just wonder if some model exist that could help everybody.
