Hi Gang,

Last night and dawn today found Sherman Island ripping with W winds 25g32 while the rest of the Bay Area is seeing sub-teen winds. This brings up a bunch of questions:

1.Why are the Sherman Island winds and nearby sites so much stronger than the rest of the Bay Area at dawn?

2. Why were the Sherman winds gusting well over 30 at dawn?

3.Why are the Sherman Island winds W rather than WSW or SW?

4. Why does Sherman sometime blow all night long in the mid 20's?

5. Why do the Sherman winds often weaken some mid to late morning then rebuild in the afternoon?

This blog tries to answer some of those questions:

sailed dawn patrol sunday the 7th at sherman, 6:30 am to 9. It was really nice, windsurfing at dawn and watching the sun rise through the window of the sail on port tacks. Neat to read this blog after experiencing it first hand. 4.0 on 85 L wave board handled the Montezuma Venturi quite well.
