      The forecast indicates the return of an onshore flow Saturday combined with an ebb maxing at the Gate (3.23 knots)
      at 12:53. It looks like an up hill slog against the tide for the ride to Vallejo, but with breeze. Low is 16:13 at 0.42

      The good news is the tide is high Sunday morning at 11:05 near 4.7', which will help get boats with draft off the mud and
      a nice ride on the outgoing tide home.

      Wear your sunscreen.

                  We're coming! But look out, since SSS is max 2, and I have 2 kids, the new plan is to sail three-up in the YRA PS Series. See you all on the water in about 5 hours

                        Hope that's not the voice of experience speaking.

                          2013 Vallejo: Breeze On



                          A windy start at the Berkeley Circle, followed by a bit of light air after Raccoon Strait
                          and then a filling in nicely, provided crews with excellent conditions for todays ride to the Vallejo YC, the unofficial kick off to the Party Circuit!

                          Here's a few clicks...

                            Great day on the water, with a not so great end. Lovely run past the brothers, simple and sweet. Finished the race, we had planned a turn & burn so we threw in a reef and made our way back out. As we got up towards the entrance to the shipping channel, we hit a nasty wave set, and fell off of one, the rig came down. Broke above the spreaders, I suppose compression.

                              It's blowing 30 to 40 at RYC right now - a good honker.
