The prospects of windsurfing a storm like Sandy gets everyone excited. I was glad to read a post from Billy T in the Long Island windsurfing bulletin board, that I've excerpted:
"Depending on the direction, and the force of the wind, there will probably be crap floating in the water. Keep Joe in mind when the storm sailing hype starts, sail safe."
Joe was the great and mighty Joe Rocco, an excellent windsurfer and storm sailor who died when he hit floating debris following Hurricane Irene last year.
Be careful. Wear a helmet. Keep Joe in mind when the storm sailing hype starts. If the storm really tears things up, sailing immediately afterwards might be a terrible idea.
