    Aaaahhh. Well, that looks scary. Maybe I'll start with everybody else (because that's the fun part), then anchor in Aquatic Park and wait for the next day, when it seems the weather will have moderated a bit. Because my middle name is Prudence. Is this kosher? I can't tell from the Sailing Instructions.

    Will it really be only 10-15 TWS at 126 40? One can hope. (GFS per Passage Weather.)

    And a southerly swell under NW wind waves - there must be something happening down south.

    As long as you anchor out and don't row in for latte's and brioche, I'd say probably...
    of course you'd need to sail into & out of the harbor, On & Off the anchor etc...
    Sausalito sounds easier all around and has better departure scenarios.

    Iím following Ruben Gabrielís advice, ordering a thin crust spinach, onion and mushroom thin crust from Extreme pizza on College Ave to go Tuesday night. Iíll ask them to cut it up into slices, put each slice into a ziplock bag, then eat at my leisure. Or in between leaning over the leeward side of my boat. The pain and the ecstasy.

    Thanks for this, Bob. I"d just looked at the NWS pages. Pretty Windy, but not horrible, but a 7 foot swell is impressive. Surfs up!
