Last year when I first moved to this town I posted a video of the storm winds but failed to get any flags in the shot. This year, while the storm is not as intense, I did get that detail. I've looked at a couple of sailing websites to try to find a way to estimate windspeed by those flags but I'm not getting anything beyond "Don't sail today." I was wondering if any of you could point me to a site where a person (like me) without formal instruments could get a sense of the wind.
FYI last couple of days it's rained hard with some gusts of wind. Today the wind is nearly dry but a lot stronger.
Brief video under cut.
