Lighter? Yeah, wind speed dropped to 25 today.
I was caught in it on the SF Bay and did the pitchpole/capsize/turtle in one move. The wind was strong enough I righted the boat solo in less than a minute (crew was too shell shocked and inexperienced to know what to do). Adrenaline got me through the cold and the beach never felt better.
Scuttlebutt around the beach in Alameda said there were 16 big boat capsizes yesterday on the bay. I am unable to confirm.
On the other hand, the kitesurfers were in their element.
