Looking for advice - Keeping a nice burn in the wind

I’ve been at the beach for the last few days and trying to smoke on a screened in porch. There’s a constant 10-15 mph wind outside so probably 5-8 on the porch here. I couldn’t keep a Partagas Ramón y Ramón to burn smoothly at all and the night before with a Macanudo wasn’t much better. How do you smoke sticks and enjoy them when it’s breezy?

    the old joke is; Smoking a cigar in the wind is like forgetting your anniversary, no matter how hard you work to make it up, you ain't gettin' any.

    Cherry windward.

    I agree.  However, depending how strong the wind is, I tend to get a few small burn holes in my shirt.  If I don't do it that way, it burns weird.
