BF-

Looks like your location might have been between the South Tower and the shoreline of SF? If so, I just wanted to mention that this area is known for breaking surf on days when the swell is coming in. There was a video of a sailboat that was capsized by a breaking wave there; and his account was that there was no visibility of the breakers from outside of the bridge. Use extreme caution if you decide to sail through that area.

The swell tends to "stack up" when the current is ebbing also. We were out there on Sunday and decided to ditch our plans to go ocean sailing due to the steep 6-8' swell west of Pt Diablo and the heavy wind (it was piping up to ~35kts). We went south to check out the ballpark and Hunters Point area (the wind was good down there also). Otherwise it was just another day on the bay with ~3-4 distress calls; a collision and 2 MOB.

Thanks Keel, we always stay between the towers, and we don't go out the gate on an ebb. I wished I gone south too!

CD, we are staying tied to the dock this weekend. I bought him a fishing pole and we are gonna fish off the dock.
