Weird. Graph shows a lot more than 16-18 from noon to 1:00 PM.

That sensor has been reading way too high.
This problem has been pointed out here:

Instead, heed the the proper sensor!

For example, Alton's quote of 16-18 at noon shows up as 16-19 on this sensor.

Day 15 - Scored a fine 1.5 hrs in SW 18-20 - just enough for my 9m + TT. Came off the water just before it became gusty.
