Sailing Barcelona weather changes

Around 8am I got up ready to sail and I didnĀ“t believe my eyes : zero wind, .5 knots! The forecasts, the cloud formations, everything was indicating wind, lots of wind. I walk to the local bakery have a coffee on the way and while reading through the morning newspaper I feel the wind. I finish my coffee and a gust wraps my news paper in two pieces. Surprised again, in the time of taking one coffee the wind variates that much. I buy bread go home and read 18 knots (9 m/s) of wind, within 20 minutes! Sailors beware and be flexible wind swifts fast very fast here in Barcelona.
