went to crissy... had to wait around all day for ups to come, and then I didn't get there until 4pm or so. it sucked... not that windy. i was on 4.7 and 90l, and most people were on 5.0's and such. holey, intermittently filled in to the beach, weird choppy.... not a great sesh. what a waste... it was so windy on the peninsula Sad

Well you guys did better than me. I made the wrong choice and went to Sherman. It was very up and down and out of the northwest (which I didn't see before I drove out there). So I didn't even get in the water. Hung out, checked a couple of different launches, then drove home. Later it turned to a good direction but was in the low 20's.

Then watched the graphs at Tomales showing 31. Probably too windy there anyway Smile

Thanks swchandler.

At least it was double the number! Did you launch from the old flying tigers?

The airport was showing gust to the mid 50's, have a feeling it probably hit 60. Wasn't a soul on the footpath either.

Strange, a few years ago on a day like yesterday there would have been 15 cars at Embassy. Best launch, nearly right into the wind and I think the best parking and rigging with a hose to rinse yourself and gear off.

If anyone here doesn't know where Embassy is as follows. 101N bound, exit Anza Blvd. 1st stop light go straight across, crossing Airport Blvd. About another 700 - 800 yards the road will dead end at park and restrooms. Launch is 10 feet to the right of the fish cleaning station. If you look closely some kind person made an easy walk down. At higher tide make sure to push off at least 10 feet from rocks so you don't ding you fin on hidden rocks, imagine how I found that out!

Left my home turf at Sherman yesterday to sail 3rd Ave.

Was on my 4.0 AeroTech from 4 - 7:30, mostly in the ship channel. There were just a handful of sails out there.

Waist high rolling chop from comming from different directions with occasional head high swell / waves. To be in control on my jibes and wave surfing a 3.0 - 3.5 would have been more ideal. Tuned the top half of my sail into a floppy noodle and I didn't ease off on the outhaul until about 6:30.

Was lots of fun!

About 6 guys were out on Morro bay [or estuary] by the museum at high tide [around 1 pm]. Gusts over 30. Sails ranged from 3.8 to 4.5. I sailed a 4.2, 85 liters 180 lbs. Great chop but sea weed and fluky wind by the museum an issue. Also some 1 foot shallows in spots that freak one out when moving at over 30 mph . For my money however, a better choice than trying to sail in the hurricane conditions that were going off up the coast at Arroyo Laguna.
