PM Sent. Regular cab w/long bed (so the camper will fit).
231 boats entered as of this morning.
Bring your sunblock and beers for Sat, might be a bit of a wait for wind. From sailflow:
"See note above. Dead and warm in the AM. Dead to weak most of the afternoon then towards 5PM watch for an abrupt ramp up"
Cutoff is not until 8PM, so that leaves 3 good hours of sailing
The municipal marina does have issues with depth at the entrances -
Dear Sir or Maam,
Thank you for contacting our marina. At low tide the North entrance is 3-4' and the South entrance is about 2'.

A view of the Vallejo Race from the Point Pinole pier trails. There were lightish winds, the flood turned to an ebb tide. The first fleets and lead boats chased the last of the flood and they were a mile off the pier in the channel. The wind patches alternately favored the shore and channel.
