I've been thinking about the wind all day today.  It has been blowing out of the south since yesterday morning, something I very much appreciate as it brings the warm air up from the south.  But in a few weeks we'll be hoping for wind out of the north.

Here are the wind compasses for Assateague Island on the seaside of the Eastern Shore.  To sail outside of the barrier islands we will need winds out of the north - anywhere from WNW to ENE would do.  The compasses say the odds are winds will be out of the south or SSW, which would means staying inside the barrier islands.

But there is a chance, even a decent chance, that we will get a north wind.  We'll be prepared either way.  Regardless of compasses or forecasts, the wind and weather will be what it will be.
