** February 7 @ 7pm PT: Tidal Currents with a focus on the San Francisco Bay - with Kame Richards **
Join Alameda sailmaker and sailing legend Kame Richards for a discussion of how tides and currents make San Francisco Bay a unique and enjoyable location to sail. We'll be asking questions like: Why are there tides? Why are there two tides a day? How come high tide does not happen at max flood and low tide does not happen at max ebb? What happens at Alcatraz? How does the Bay affect the waters?
There will be the opportunity to answer your own questions during this interactive webinar.
