You should have been here earlier

I checked out the Exploratorium Cam and could see that it was really windy down at Crissy. The bay was covered with whitecaps and sand on the beach was blowing everywhere. 30 sailors were ripping back and forth and coming right next to the beach for big jibes and freestyle maneuvers. Perfect for photos. I grabbed my gear and headed out.

As I pulled in the parking lot, I could already sense something was up. I couldn’t see many sails out on the water. All but two or three of the sailors were on the beach carrying their gear back to their cars. Soheil Zahedi had rigged a little bigger sail and was still out enjoying the day.

Check out the pics.

    I sailed from 5:30-6:30 on my 6.3 more wound than Ive ever been this season. Id guess it was gusting in the mid 30s- enough for me to make about 1/2 my gybes!
    Nice eye as always!

    I got there just in time to see you cruising back in to the beach at the yacht club.
