Missed it again!!!

San Francisco Bay Candlestick Park

Yesterday I missed the peak winds by showing up late and today was the same thing.

It looked stronger with Brad again on 4.2 and Kevin again on 4.8.

I went out 4.5 this time and again was in spock heaven.

Then it dropped. All the small sails left while Graham (on 4.8) and I kept planing and off. I guess our persistence paid off as Joolz (late arrival), Brad and James went back out on bigger sails (5.0-5.6).

I eventually came in and watched them and decided to rig up to 4.8.

One great reach where I pulled a clean spock for James' GoPro and then was bobbing around (including all of them).

Again I was caught chasing the wind as it dropped. Very odd for Candlestick to peak at 2pm only to drop all afternoon. At least I got on the water but today felt like I was definitely San Francisco skunked (it's impossibly to get truly skunked here it seems)
