thought i'd blog a post or two about sailing while our accidental jibe sailing blog is still on hiatus. it was a rough and stormy bay today... forecast showed chance of thunderstorms in the east bay. but we figured we'd give it a go anyhow.
we sailed half way between treasure island and angel island and decided to turn back. winds were gusting over 30 knots, and online sailing magazine latitude 38 described sailing that day as follows... "with a ripping ebb fueling a steep chop, the bay became a carnage factory, claiming gear and sails." it really didn't seem all that bad out, but it just wasn't very enjoyable for the guest crew.
