Summary
Observed on the birthday of Sir Francis Beaufort, who was born on this day in 1774.

A day to honour the British naval officer, Sir Francis Beaufort, who in 1806 devised a scale of wind force from 0 (calm) to 12 (hurricane) that was based on observation, not requiring any special instruments. The scale was adopted for international use in 1874 and has since been enlarged and refined. Beaufort was born at Flower Hill, Meath, Ireland, and died at Brighton, England, Dec 17, 1857.
