Praise the GODS: finally the sun! One of the worst May/June in recent history!

Big crowd at Crissy that delivers a classic Crissy day: wind way outside 4.5-5.0 with nice swell or chop depending where you sail. One of those days that makes one really miss TI: instead of slogging out way passed Anita with a 5.0, and sailing overpowered while wondering if you would ever make it back, TI would have been 4.3 ... boom: right at the start! Still one cannot really complain! Sun, waves, wind, green trees, blue sky ... Very Happy

Alameda 4:30-6p, nicely powered outside, especially past Harbor Bay ferry channel by OAK where wind remained consistent and allowed 100% planing (150lb on 6.3 superfreak, bic windsup). sunny and warm, yay!

Perfect day at Coyote. Sunny, flood to ebb, steady powered to overpowered 4.3, nice swell and a few steady "above boom" wave trains. Mostly overboarded (overpower 4.3 is when the RRD 85 starts to be too quick and bulky) I sailed more southerly than usual, below the second yellow buoy, where conditions seemed easier.

Not many people out it must be the $6 charge at the gate that is indeed a drag Shocked

Looked good at first, however 4.2/80L + flood tide + dying winds = misery. The only good thing about my slog fest is that I don't need to work the weights at the gym tonight as my arm muscles are already bulging from the effort today.

Had to resort to my two least favorite activities on the water - uphauling and tacking. Weird day, with wind on and off and shifty. Some folks figured it out, I gave up after a few decent runs.

Sunny!! Crissy deliver starting at 2:30 with a 4.3. The wind drops after a while and I go back to rig a 5.0. Of course the wind comes back with a vengeance but at that point I soldier on (not going to change back to 4.3 Shocked ). Very powered up in fairly massive chop that keeps increasing as the ebb develops. Fun, but a bit taxing.

Tons of people out, a couple of really idiotic kiters doing stunts inside Anita Point (f@#$k any safety concerns!) and another couple that clearly could not care less about right of way.

Other than that: so nice!!!! Very Happy

Day after pretty much the same. Windy (6.6) at up to around 3 pm or so. Than it drops and finally fills in around 3:30. Still north of Anita point, but strong 4.3 outside, 5.0 too much but workable. Again VERY choppy.

Thurs was a really strange day at Coyote too. The outside (about 3:30pm) died way before the inside. The inside was still sailable until 4:30. Usually it's the other way around, the outside gets stronger when the thermal comes up at 3 or 4pm. No hint of what caused it. Fog was in the San Bruno gap, no fog in hwy 92 gap and warm in the valleys. Maybe weird Eddy came back?

Strong steady wind with a southerly cant and nice rollers. Good to see some windsurfers out there today...not just the usual kiters (not that there's anything wrong with that) Smile
