Default RE: Highwind / Lightwind definitions

Like Expander I simply go by the Beaufort Scale. It is uncanny how this pans out:
1-3 Light winds (under 10knots): dont bother; hybernation mode
4 Moderate (11-16knots): twinge of interest; wish for bigger board
5 Fresh (17-21): sail until I drop
6 Strong (22-27 knots) fun for a bit; wish for smaller board
7 Near Gale (28-33 knots); Hmmm
