Thank you Gabor, the 'aggregate' function
operating on zoo(WS) does the job beautifully!
'zoo' has a lot of other goodies too, great
package (thanks for that too).

Assuming VDATE is a character vector this produces
a zoo time series object.
z <- aggregate(zoo(WS), as.Date(VDATE), max)
coredata(z) and time(z) are the data vector of maximums and corresponding
The R command:
gives an introduction to zoo.
Aside from zoo you could check out ?tapply, ?by and ?aggregate .
