Truly unfortunate. Sailing to Hawaii and hitting Yellow Bluff? But pictures show outside the Gate near Kirby Cove. Yellow Bluff is INSIDE the Bay and well North of the Gate on the way to Sausalito. VHF
, EPRIB, PLC makes no sense, seems he didn't know how to use a GPS. I sail those very waters each week. It's important to recognize the differences between two miles west of the Gate and inside. Yes, standing waves can and do exist off and south and on the Potato Patch north of the shipping
channel, but not so much between the Gate and Pt. Bonita, which is about three miles west fo the Gate. Sorry to hear the bad news. As always, conflicting reports, we're getting better, though, at minimizing speculation. Good work, skippers.
Weather, while foggy means different things to different people. This time of year, even heavy fog is no lower than 800-1500 feet above sea level. Rare, on the deck
fog, usually only occurs in the winter around here. Different fog for different skippers.
