January 16, 2016, at Bird Island Basin, Corpus Christi, TX. Winds were forecasted to peak at 35 mph with the passage of a cold front. I rigged up in 5 mph winds before the front hit. Forecast said it was supposed to slowly build to 35 mph gusts, but as I launched the front hit and it suddenly jumped straight to 35 mph. Winds eventually hit some 54 mph gusts. Scary stuff. Thank goodness for the safety of Bird Island!
