Currents...

Half an hour before the start, the flood tide currents are forecast to be just over 4kt in the center of the bay.  So the paddlers are going to have to hug the coast on the way out to Pt. Bonnita, trying to find the eddie currents that would assist them.

Weather Conditions

The weather is COLD - the mist is hanging over the bridge; there's a good 15-20kt wind blowing into the bay.  The short course is about to start.

The organisation is superb - hot coffee and breakfast (US style - bagels, muffins & lots of fruit!) laid on.
