The wind changed direction to SSW causing a wind shadow on the Crissy field side of the bay with light off shore wind combined with a strong ebb current .

If you were still in the wind up at the north tower, you could sail down to yellow bluff and then come in low which many did. Those in the middle up wind and inside were out of luck. ebbing out.


Basically a September shut down in July. Beware monsoonal weather with a thermal trough on the coast. Fluky wind today and through the week. If you see mid-high level clouds chances are winds could be up/down or unpredictable/shifty.

Seems like Fall is coming early this year.
