A vote of the Board of the Key West Community Sailing Center established wind requirements/restrictions for the boats in our fleet. Boats can only be taken out when maximum wind gusts are less than 20 knots. If wind gusts measures 20 knots or higher, no boats may be signed out and must remain docked.

To determine wind speed, go to and check wind at Smathers Beach or check the wind reading above on Weather Underground. That is the reading we will be using as our decision point.
