tsingtao-Don't know if you have been out the gate yet, but you can expect some very big waves and high wind in the channel under the bridge. Don't let that discourage you though, if it is not in the forecast. Many times it will be 25+ knots in the Bay with big swells under the Bridge and when you get out the Gate, its flat and 10 knots. Also, if no one told you yet, refrain from going out the gate on an ebb tide, or more correctly, trying to come in on one. Sailing backwards is one of the great wonders of the Bay.

Great men always have too much sail up. - Christopher Buckley
