Hi Gang,

So mac, one of long-time customers, sent me the message below about the winds becoming gustier at many Bay Area launch sites.

The answer is complex but this blog shows how the increasingly prevalent eddies help make the wind gusty.

Thanks Mike. Ironically, today was a bit steadier. Every day is different.

Nice write up Mike.

So can we chalk the NNW direction to climate change? Because it sure has made us East Bay sailors happy this season!
