Yesterday afternoon I paddled on the course of the US Surfski Champs from the start at Fort Baker, out as far as Pt. Diablo and back to the race finish at Berkeley Marina. We hit the wildest currents I've ever seen.

I'm totally blown away by San Francisco... In the first 36 hours I had done two 20km downwind paddles, I'd played in the currents under the Golden Gate bridge - and man, the hospitality of these people has to be experienced to be believed...

The U.S. Surfski Championships are set for August 22 & 23. This year's venue includes a new course that will be 80% downwind. This newly designed course will take paddlers out the Golden Gate and around the infamous Point Bonita Buoy where the course then turns downwind for a 13 mile run to Berkeley. The run from Point Bonita to Berkeley is one of the best downwinds in Northern California.

20 Sep 2008 San Francisco: "It was a tight tactical race, right from the beginning," said an exhausted Dawid Mocke. He'd just finished the 2008 edition of the US Surfski Championships... coming second to a rampant Hank McGregor.
